Not Quite Perfect:

A copy of the Japan travel guide book that’s not quite perfect. The books have flaws – each is different. Some were damaged during delivery;, and others have a scratch or smudge of ink on the cover. Each is different, but they’re all perfectly readable; the flaws don’t affect your ability to read the book. There are no missing pages or misprints inside the book – only the cover is affected.

The book is the 2022 edition (all updates are available on a web page; there’s a link in the book).

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.”

“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'”
