Start your review of Japan Travel Guide: Things I Wish I Knew Before Going To Japan
A bit disappointed in this one to be honest. I started reading it and got a little confused on the different tone of voices for example at the very beginning gives you some definitions on Japanese pop culture, so I thought it’s target reader was for the older generation but few pages later it reads something like Take a picture there totally insta! So you can tell that this book hasn’t have a proper editing put in place. The book gets more vague as not description of places or photos, and the la ...more

Some good info

I thought there would be more info about the customs in Japan. I am wondering about how to dress in certain different places among others.
Useful, easy to understand. Good Fuji info.

First, positives:
Written by travel guides, with plenty of experience, who offer real life, useful tips for visiting Japan. Where to go, what to avoid, when it's best and how much it costs.
Easy to read, simple and easy English.

Now, the negatives:
Not the best structure, the order of the chapters and the content could've been improved, to make it easier to follow.
A bit too simplistic. I understand its target is the foreigner looking for a short Japanese trip, but I wish it went into a bit more dept

Good recommendations, advice and itineraries

Lots of good information for the novice tourist to Japan. No mention of driving Japan as the author pushes public transport. Bit of a focus on "budget travel" however there was good practical advice that will save time, money and frustration.

Useful travel information

I have been to Japan twice. This book hits many of the highlights with brief, succinct, and useful pointers. I have recommended it to people who are going to Japan for the first time and are trying to plan an itinerary.

I suspect if this is the first Japan guide book that you read it is suitable, but I was looking for something with a little more meat on the cultural side and this is a bit light in this area.

Interesting guide to Japan. Will be helpful when traveling there.
Char Freund
This book had great reviews as a hip, easy to read guide with publisher comments like “Why buy a heavy 800 page tome when this is all you need?”. So, it was easy to read in that I finished it in two hours while taking notes on specific destinations for an upcoming tour. It was more for those planning independent travel with all of the bus and train svhedules. The descriptions were written at an elementary level. Here is an example of the one paragraph describing the area around Mount Fuji. Grant ...more
