Overview

Map your own adventure.

Japan Day by Day is the perfect answer for travelers who want to know the best places to visit and the best way to see the Land of the Rising Sun.

  • Packed with 107 detailed full-color maps and more than 700 full-color photos
  • 83 regional and city itineraries that will help you maximize your time while touring the country's top sights. Tour the Tokyo’s top museums, the subculture of Osaka, Hiroshima's Peace Park, brave the arctic winds of Hokkaido, or just relax on the Okinawan Islands.
  • Our authors, longtime Japan experts, hit all the highlights, from the top temples and castles to more offbeat destinations like Tokyo's fish market, Jigokudani's snow-monkey hot springs, or Naruto’s whirlpools. They've checked out all of the country's best hotels and restaurants in person, and offer authoritative, candid reviews that will help you find the choices that suit your tastes and budget.
  • You'll also get coverage of shopping and nightlife in the major cities; a full chapter on Japan’s rich history and culture, information on special-interest tours, and advice on planning a successful Japanese vacation.
  • The cultural "Spotlight" sections take a closer look at the most compelling aspects of Japanese culture and include how to drink sake, the history of the samurai, and a crib sheet on contemporary Japanese writers.
  • Frommer's Japan Day by Day also includes a color fold-out map.
