Review

I go to Japan on business quite a bit and decided to take some time to visit some interesting spots in Tokyo, which is touted as one of the most interesting cities in the world.  This book was crucial for my Tokyo trip and I found it to be a good resource.  It was brief and very informative and let me plan my whole trip on the airplane ride over. Worth the read especially for the food section- it made restaurant searching so much easier. If I had to choose one travel guide to help me navigate the city, it would be this one.
