Review

 

This book proved to be the absolutely most useful book I bought for my trip to Japan. It is all well and good to know where you want to go, but getting there is a whole separate project!  This book was a helpful resource that got me from Point A to Point B in a timely manner on several occasions. The area maps helped us find where we wanted to go every time!  This book was my constant companion while in Japan and never failed me once.
