    This book had great information divided up into logical sections

    This book had great information divided up into logical sections. It's a must read for anyone planning to travel to Japan. It's an overview but gives you just the right amount of information to be helpful and not overwhelming (like most guides). The ONLY reason it has 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think photos would have been a great addition! Some things are just hard to picture when you're new to Asian culture!!
