Longer ones intimidate me, and I rarely do anything more than eye them longingly If only I had my mom's discipline, when tackling them Having had my life-long dream of visiting Japan come true, I figured I might as well read a serious guide book I never really manage to read a guide book 'properly'. Having had my life-long dream of visiting Japan come true, I figured I might as well read a serious guide book for once in my life.
I had bought one after all, albeit fully convinced I'd never have a reason to open it. This Japan guide was It didn't make me like guide books, nor was it an easy read. Still I can clearly recall several instances where I found myself getting seriously engrossed in it. My favorite part of it were the suggested visiting routes.
I liked following the trail using the numbered sights on the map, and would occasionally google images if a building or a park caught my attention. The reading experience was a rather painful one though. Proof of this are the two months that took me to finish going through the book, despite having ambitioned myself to read from it EVERY. There were times when 2 pages were the absolute most I could stomach. It was just plain exhausting. No I have learned so much more from following JVloggers' random adventures on Youtube, along with several "Tips and Tricks" vlogs about Japan.
Romantically eating green tea ice cream, in Shirakawa-go village The book does however, offers an excellent source in finding the most famous sights in each major city. It also comes up with suggestions for several additional things to see.
Plus, it makes for an interesting contrast between the different regions and sub-regions in Japan. View 2 comments. Sep 27, Burt rated it really liked it Shelves: travel. This book was indispensable for my Japan trip's planning. It's full of wonderful images and suggestions for everything from festivals, natural beauty, history and nightlife. If you're going to take a trip to Japan, this is a great place to start looking for travel ideas. I'm thinking of going to Hokkaido next time as well as northern Honshu, and of course Tokyo again.

This easy-to-use Japan train app is a godsend to foreign travelers and is free for the first 30 days. Upon entering train departure and arrival stations, the app displays in English the exact journey time, distance, fare and transfer stations, as well as which track your train is departing from. This includes long-distance shinkansen as well as subway trains. Woe to those who are late by even a minute -- the schedule is incredibly accurate.

The Keisei Skyliner connects Narita with the Ueno and Nippori stations -- depending on your final destination, this can be a better and more timely connection that Tokyo Station.
