From experience I do not consider the maps in Lonely Planet guides much good, but the low point is reached in this guide to Tokyo. Quite a number of things are in locations a few hundred meters from the indicated spots, which is a nuance in compactness of Tokyo. Besides this it is as you expect from Lonely Planet: a decent guide.
The publication date says August 2008, but many of the recommendations in this book are a bit out of date. A lot of the clubs have closed down, and some of the restaurants have closed. I think a new addition is coming out in september so I'm hoping that a lot of the errors are a bit updated in the book. I also don't like the new blue, black and white versions of the map, unlike before where they had colored maps. The subway maps could also be updated a little bit to include a wider range of area.
