As you get close to finalizing a trip, it's time to pull out Michelin's "Red Guides," in which anonymous inspectors visit restaurants and hotels to rate the quality of service and products. The guides, easy to carry and consult, include attractive photos of the establishment, an entrée, and, for hotels, the interior of a guest room. Detailed street maps accompany each inclusion. The Japanese guides (Kyoto Osaka 2010; Tokyo 2010) often include a tidbit about the chef or proprietress and mention menu changes; Hong Kong Macau 2010 is in English and Chinese. Restaurants are divided by Michelin stars, geographical location, and cuisine type. Helpfully, hours are included, and some restaurants boast about having tea or sake experts. Hotels are classified from quite comfortable to luxury, and locations are clearly described, e.g., near a metro stop or in a large building or complex. The conversational style is particularly inviting. Special notes, indicating, for example, that Mount Fuji can be seen in the distance or that shoes must be removed, add to the welcoming feel. VERDICT These new city guides from a 110-year-old giant in travel publishing are essential to round out Chinese and Japanese travel collections.—Susan G. Baird, formerly with Oak Lawn P.L., IL
