Customer reviews

“Anyone planning a trip to Japan NEEDS THIS BOOK. I wish I had, had this my first trip. It would of put all my fears to rest. It’s packed with so much truly useful information and covers loads of different interests so there is something for everyone.”

“This is so far the best Japanese travel guide ever! I’ve been to Japan once and I own more than 10 Japan travel guides. I love buying and collecting travel guides, especially of Japan, however none of the others come close to this one in terms of details and useful information. This is a very thorough guide and I will recommend it to everyone who is planning a trip to Japan.”

“Anyone who’s on the fence about this book – I’d recommend it 100%. It’s got everything you need and more. Take the plunge!”

“We’ve seen countless Japan guidebooks over the last 15 years but yours is the best by far. I help people prepare for their trips but all of the little extra advice I’d give people is already in your book!”

“An absolute must have! … This book is incredibly easy to understand, has loads of high quality pictures on every page and given me so much more to consider on my next trip. Throw away those other boring guide books, as this by far has been the best one I’ve read so far!”

“It’s honestly the best travel guide for Japan that I’ve ever seen. If you’re ever thinking of going, get this book first.”

“There is no way you’d need anything else to help you plan. Even though I’ve been before on self planned trips there is so much information I didn’t know in here! And it’s so handy having all that info in one place! I wish I’d had this for my first trip I really do! If you are planning your first trip or been before and want to go again I would highly recommend ‘Your Guide to Japan'”
