Lonely Planet Japan is a comprehensive guide to all the major areas of Japan, featuring itineraries, insider tips and honest reviews for all budgets, be it booking accommodation or finding somewhere to eat out.

 

In planning a trip to Japan, I found the depth that this book goes into incredible. Not only does it give a breakdown of each city, there is an infinitely useful category called ‘Survival’, which offers chapters on the history, people, cuisine, architecture and sport of the country, as well as explaining what to expect from Japan in the modern day. The information is presented in a way that is not too overwhelming, still leaving plenty of room to explore the place for yourself.

 

The guide also contains colour maps and images throughout to both break up the text and give a decent sense of what the place you’re looking at is like. However, compared to other guidebooks such as the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide, there are far fewer photographs, meaning that if you want to truly see what a place will be like before arriving, you may have to find images elsewhere.

 

One of the issues that I found with the book was its size. With nearly 200 pages dedicated to information on Tokyo alone, it is far too big to carry around with you if you are out and about, and will take up lots of room in a suitcase. For planning a trip beforehand, it is undoubtedly a great choice, yet if you are looking for something that you can carry around with you for quick recommendations, then it would be far better to get a smaller guide.

 

Nevertheless, as a resource for discovering everything from cultural etiquette to hidden gems to great food, then Lonely Planet Japan is a fantastic choice.

Pros
  • Large depth of content, with 200 pages dedicated to information on Tokyo and information on huge range of country-specific topics
  • Coloured maps and images throughout
Cons
  • Not as many photographs as other travel guides
  • Far too big to carry around

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
