Lonely Planet Tokyo (City Guide)
I purchased two Lonely Planet city guides (Kyoto and Tokyo) for our recent trip to Japan. I really liked the layout and organization of the books. I wish though that there were more "walking guides" like in the Frommer's guidebooks. What was most helpful were the transportation hints that are listed with each sight. While most of the directions assume that you are starting at a central location (e.g. Tokyo Station), they definitely helped provide a hint that you can work along with additional subway/bus route guides to figure out your gameplan. I used the Kyoto book far more than the Tokyo one mainly because we saw more of the traditional sight-seeing sights there. In tokyo, we did more shopping and wandering.
