Reviews - What do customers think about Not Just a Good Food Guide: Osaka, including Kyoto & Kobe?
A little old, a little basic, a little lacking... May 25, 2010
This book was decidedly not for me. I already knew a bit about different kinds of Japanese food, so I did not get much value on the introduction of different cuisines, though other people might. This book is a little old (2005), so I think some of the restaurant information might be outdated... additionally, the book contains no maps, which was something I'd been hoping for since I get confused like crazy with Japanese addresses!
I found the web site of the author a lot more useful than the book since it does include maps, photos, and reviews. Additionally, the web site includes recipes. So in the end, the internet won it for me.
