Good Map - Tough City Jul 28, 2008
This is a good detailed map to Tokyo - for once I didn't get completely lost. I wish I had had it on my first three visits when (among many other mis-steps),I spent hours confused on the subway where it is difficult to read station maps becasue of the serious crowds. Trust me you need your own so you can read it at your convenience. Too the architectural drawings of major buildings in different districts are a good visual aid when walking around. Tokyo is a difficult city alright and without a detailed map you are doomed.
Unless you want to carry around an encyclopedic street guide weighing five pounds this Street Wise is the one for you. For the casual or business traveler this compact laminated map is the best I've found....and I've tried too many to list.

This map is not helpful as it excludes relevant portions of the city. Portion relevant as Tokyo is not a centralized city as many others, but lives on various epicentres as Shibuya, Shinjuku, Tokyo, Ueno, Asaksa etc. which have thir own suburbs bustling with life and activites of every day relevance. If you're only interested in the main area of the city then this map is otherwise excellent. Tommaso
