Tokyo Adventures: Glimpes of the City in Bygone Eras Jan 16, 2002
This book not only provides you with very interesting half day and full day walking tours but it really helps when you do not speak a word of Japanese. It provides you with a comprehensive commentary on the sights and sounds around you as you walk along the wonderful streets or gardens of tokyo. Detailed maps that are easy to follow are included. It even gives interesting information such as the jovial, friendly and helful policeman who sits in a certain small police post - who is very willing to give you a short history lesson on the area around there , even though it is all in Japanese or the tiny shop tucked away in a corner that makes the best fresh homemade tofu or the oldest sake shop and on so many other wonderful things. You have a choice on which tours you want to go on depending on your interest such as gardens, old streets, temples etc. Thanks to this book - I had a wonderful time in Tokyo exploring many of its charms.
