Abby, her husband Matt, friend Yuuko and sidekick Kitty Sweet Tooth will introduce you to:

  • Fantastic shops for lovers of everything from vintage manga to dollar-store treasures
  • Great places to take kids—or be a kid, of any age—like the Ghibli Museum and Palette Town
  • Famous sites both old and new, from Sensoji Temple to Tokyo Tower
  • Major comic conventions in the anime, cosplay and manga capital of the world
  • Must-visit spots like Ueno Park and even a few spots outside the city

There is also a special family travel section for those traveling with children, as well as information on ways to prepare ahead of time to make the most of your stay in Tokyo.

Editorial Reviews
"The book is inherently readable and engaging. It has a lot of practical knowledge on things visitors need to know. The book is great for immersing yourself into the sometimes very different social situations you may encounter and cultural things you may run into, and I enjoyed that the most." — Travel Pulse
"The author's appealing illustrations range from restaurant gimmicks, such as a clown driving robotic ladies, to beautiful Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. Illustrated descriptions by Matt and Yuuko add to the fun. VERDICT This title will be helpful when planning a trip to Japan or for pure 'stay at home' entertainment." — Library Journal
"Anyone with even a passing interest in visiting Tokyo someday would do well to seek out this title. It contains valuable information for those unfamiliar with the city as well as a few nuggets even the seasoned Japanophile will find useful." — School Library Journal
