Lonely Planet Tokyo is a travel guidebook that features a range of topics, recommendations, advice and insights into Japan’s capital city so that you can plan the best trip possible. Like all the Lonely Planet guides, this book contains honest reviews for all budgets, as well as a series of detailed city maps to help you navigate your way around.

 

One of the best features of the book for me is the way in which the content is set out in an easy to read format, neatly ordered by neighbourhood. Under each neighbourhood title there is a list of sights, eating, drinking and nightlife, entertainment, sports and activities, allowing the reader to quickly find exactly what they’re looking for.

 

I also particularly like the ‘Understand’ section that includes the history of Tokyo, pop culture, arts and architecture and ‘Tokyo Today’. This should always be an important part of any travel guide, as understanding the culture, history and people will provide a more enriching trip. However, not all guides do include this, therefore the fact that Lonely Planet dedicate an entire chapter to it is great.

 

Another good aspect of the book is the inclusion of a subway map. Travelling via metro in any unfamiliar city can be confusing, yet the map and an explanation of how it operates undoubtedly makes this part of the trip slightly simpler, allowing you to avoid trying to speak in broken Japanese to find out how it all works.

 

One problem I encountered with Lonely Planet Japan was with the eBook version, which seems to be very poorly formatted in comparison to the print edition. Although it saves having to carry around the 288-page book, there are a number of typos dotted throughout the eBook that are in need of updating.

Pros
  • Nicely laid out presentation (print edition)
  • ‘Understand’ section provides information on culture and history
  • Subway map helps to navigate complicated metro system with ease
Cons
  • Formatting on eBook version in need of updating

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.
