Editorial Reviews:

"In the book you will find museums with no entrance charges, places to get the cheapest train fares, cheap eats (sometimes the only economical choices are convenience stores or BYO foods), shopping (including many 100 yen stores) and even the occasional out-of-the-blue freebies like Tokyo Tower tickets being free on your birthday." - Japan Visitor

" .... this book is so detailed! It provides the best cheap restaurants around each area (Shinjuku, Harajuku etc). I find this to be a plus point because as a foreigner who can't read Japanese, it kinda difficult finding places to eat at sometimes." - Ann, social media influencer at Petite Diaries

"Why I really like this book? It is compact and easy to use with all the information and tips at your fingertips...... Tokyo offers countless tourist attractions to visitors, and this bookgives you plenty of great travel options to explore without breaking the bank." - Japan Australia
