“This is a fun and useful guide to Japan's largest city, Tokyo, and for just traveling through Japan in general. The illustrated comic book-like format makes it easy to use, understand, and remember. In general, it helps you to navigate through the town culture so you won't feel so completely out of place. And all of this is both written and illustrated so it's very easy to follow.” ?
