Item description for Tokyo City Atlas: A Bilingual Guide (3rd Ed.) by Kodansha International...
This is the updated third edition of an atlas first published in 1998. During the past six years, the transportation network of the metropolitan area of Tokyo has changed a good deal. In the case of the subway system, lines have been extended, and some rapid-transit lines have been added, so code numbers for each station are given in our atlas for foreign travelers to identify them easily. In addition, as a result of urban development in areas such as Roppongi, Shinagawa, and Shiodome, quite a few new company buildings, stores, and hotels have appeared. These developments are also covered in this updated edition. - 21 area maps of Metropolitan Tokyo (42 pages) showing not only chome numbers but also block numbers (banchi). - 18 detailed maps of Central Tokyo (30 pages) to guide the reader even to numbered subway station entrances. - An additional 7 maps of central Yokohama and Kawasaki and access maps to 3 U.S. military bases (Yokosuka, Yokota and Zama). - Comprehensive index: More than 3,600 entries of town and station names, as well as major organizations and buildings, provide the user with easy access to all destinations.

You won't get lost Aug 10, 2008
This book is indispensable for anyone spending much time in Tokyo. It got me (and my directionally-challenged spouse) around for several months. It includes the numbers of various exits at subway stops that can save you much aggravation and extra walking. And it has the added advantage that you can read it without looking like you're lost all the time.
Essential Tokyo Guide Jun 15, 2008
This was my "go to" book on our trip to Japan. One of the most useful features was being able to determine which door to take when exiting a subway station -as many of them are huge and have many exits. This saved us a bit of time. The subway/train map was also very helpful.
You need this map if you are going to spend much time in Tokyo Jun 4, 2008
Tokyo is a very complex city to get around in. If you are going to be there on your own much, get this. Trust me - you need it. And it is very well done to boot.
Very helpful. May 31, 2008
You won't get lost with this atlas. The best thing is: all exits from subways are numbered, so you will always find the right way out. I highly recommend it.
Essential and fundamental!!!!!!! May 26, 2008
Si no quieres andar perdido y poder encontrar las direcciones, por ejemplo la de tu hotel, este atlas es vital, sobre todo hablando de una ciudad tan grande como Tokyo. Viene en ingles y japones, cosa muy importante (asi puedes pedir a un autoctono que te ayude a encontrar un sitio con el mapa). Tiene mucha informacion turistica (museos, ryokans, puntos de interes..) Y sobre todo tiene los numeros de los bloques escritos en el mapa, que es la unica forma de localizar una direccion en una ciudad en la que muchas calles no tienen nombre. Resumiendo, si no lo tienes andaras perdido y si lo tienes no.........
