Overview

The Rough Guide to Tokyo 4 by Jan Dodd, Simon Richmond, Rough Guides

The Rough Guide to Tokyo is the ultimate insiders guide to accessing Japan''s dazzling capital, with comprehensive coverage of all the sights, from beautiful traditional gardens to start-of-the-art museums and the iconic new Tokyo Midtown development. It tracks down the latest and best places to sleep, eat, drink and shop and gives detailed accounts of day-trips to Mount Fuji, the tranquil temples of Kamakura, and other nearby attractions. Full-colour sections introduce Tokyo''s highlights, its stunning modern architecture and design and its shrines and temples, and two new colour sections cover the city''s eye-opening contemporary art galleries and refreshing onsen and spas. You’ll find detailed information of Japanese cuisine and expanded coverage of shopping in the city. There are maps for the whole of the city and the recommended day-trips, plus a Tokyo subway map.

The Rough Guide to Tokyo is like having a local friend plan your trip!
