    Never Lost In Tokyo

    This atlas is very light-weighted and handy in size. All location names are written in both romaji (English characters) and Japanese/Kanji characters. In addition to enclosing Metropolitan Tokyo Rail System and Tokyo Subway System, it provides detailed maps of Central Tokyo such as Ginza, Shinjuku, Asakusa, Ikenukuro, Harajuku, and Ueno, etc. All maps show the chome numbers and block numbers so that readers can easily identify the physical address location in Tokyo. The maps also show underground passage, park, subway, hospital, hotels, and so on. For all the subway stations on the maps, it indicates all the exits' numbers of the station, readers can locate which exist they should go to for getting closer to their destination. Besides the Central Tokyo maps, it covers all 23 wards in Tokyo including: Adachi-ku, Arakawa-ku, Bunkyo-ku, Chiyoda-ku, Chuo-ku, Edogawa-ku, Itabashi-ku, Katsushika-ku, Kita-ku, Koto-ku, Meguro-ku, Minato-ku, Nakano-ku, Nerima-ku, Ota-ku, Setagaya-ku, Shibuya-ku, Shinagawa-ku, Shinjuku-ku, Suginami-ku, Sumida-ku, Taito-ku, and Toshima-ku. The atlas also inlcudes helpful supplemental indexes for looking up Hotels and Inns, Embassies, and Airlines locations. Overall, this is a MUST-HAVE for tourists walking & shopping around in Tokyo.

    I get lost everytime I go out without it.

    I visit Tokyo about six to seven times a year for the last 4 years and I still get lost without this book. For those of you who haven't been to Tokyo let me paint you a picture...There are no street signs there like we have in the US and Europe. At best, only 2% of the major roads in the city have any sort of signage. Add to that, that addresses do not flow in a pattern. Buildings get their street numbers NOT based upon location (i.e., between 1000 and 1050 Main Street) but rather when they were constructed. A new building, sitting on the exact same plot of ground as a previous building will NOT have the same address. Add into that, that Tokyo is constantly rebuilding and not even the cops on the beat or the cab drivers with their GPS can keep up. This is the second edition of the guide that I have owned and it has kept me from getting lost about a bazillion times and to find addresses that I never would have been able to find on my own.

    The only downside to the book and this is a personal peeve as I like to take the bus instead of the subway to get around the city; this book does not provide any bus route info as the London A to Z map book does. Maybe the next addition will.

    All in all, the book is great and for me, I don't leave home without it.
