Tokyo


Tokyo, Japan
The Tokyo Metropolis is one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, and is the only prefecture which operates as a city. Because Tokyo is the seat of the Japanese government, home of the Japanese Imperial Famly, and site of the Imperial Palace, it is the de facto capital of Japan, although there is no law specifically establishing it as such.

The Greater Tokyo Area has a population of over 35 million, making it the world's most populous metropolitan area, a status it has held for about 40 years. Even though Japan's population is declining, the Greater Tokyo Area's population continues to increase.

Product Description:
Although it focuses on Tokyo and Kyoto -- the two Japanese cities that most tourists want to visit -- Frommer's EasyGuide to Japan also examines the Japanese locations to which most tourists make day-trips or longer excursions from the two must-sees. Enjoying a far more favorable exchange rate than in recent years, the now-moderately-priced Japan is enjoying a major upswing in its incoming tourism, and our experienced author of many previous guidebooks to Japan has made it even easier to enjoy, easier to understand, easier to tour, in a concise "Easy Guide" designed to fit into pocket or purse.

Congratulations! You’ve found The Ultimate Travel Guide To Tokyo.

Why You Need Lost Travelers

First we would like to thank you for considering Lost Travelers as your guide book. Allow us to explain our beginnings, and the reason we created Lost Travelers. Lost Travelers was created due to one simple problem that other guides on the market did not solve; loss of time. Considering it’s the 21st century and everything is available on the internet why do we still purchase guidebooks? To save us time! That’s right.

Since the goal is to be efficient and save time, we did not understand why there are several guidebooks on the market that are of 500 to 1000 page’ long. We do not believe one needs that much bluff to get an overview of the location and some remarkable suggestions. Considering many guidebooks on the market are filled with “suggestions” that were sponsored for, we have decided to take a different approach and provide our travelers with an honest opinion and decline any sort of sponsorship. This simply allows us to cut off any nonsense and create our guides the Lost Travelers style.

Our mission is simple; to create an easy to follow guide book that outlines the best of activities to do in our limited time at the destination. This easily saves you your most valuable asset; your time. You no longer need to spend hours looking through a massive book, or spend hours searching for information on the internet as we have completed the whole process for you. The best part is we provide you our e-guides for one third the price of the leading brand, and our paper copy for only half the price.

Here Is A Quick Preview Of Our Guide
  • Welcome to Tokyo
  • Cultural Experiences
  • Where to Go and What to See
  • Where to Eat
  • Nightlife
  • Where to Stay

    Product Description:
    The definitive travel guides that make you feel like a local wherever you go. Monoclemagazine covers the world with its network of bureaus (New York, Toronto, Zurich, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Tokyo, Singapore), its more than 30 dedicated correspondents based from Beirut to Bogota, Sao Paulo to Stolkholm, and its team of on-the-road reporters based out of its headquarters in London. Monocle-the magazine that covers urbanism and the city design like no other-knows about the hidden gems in all the great cities. It also knows where to take an ambassador for breakfast, an on-the-go businessman for a late night cocktail, or where to get an astute concierge at ungodly hours. Its deep understanding of cities and all they have to offer has been compiled in the new Monocle Travel Guides. Launching this spring with editions for London and Tokyo, followed by New York and Hong Kong, these beautiful books reveal the Monocle team's favorite places, from the ideal route for an early morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Aimed at people who do not want to be tourists but rather feel like locals when they travel, these are books for those who want to mix the classic with the contemporary, want to get beyond the cliches, and know they can get a feel for a city even if they only have a few days. And they are full of surprises and quirks: the books will guide you to a grand hotel but also to a cozy two-star, and will leave you drinking in a local corner bar or being served by a great waiter who knows his craft-while being wary of pushing you into the newest, hippest, soulless bar. Created by the Monocle design team, these authoritative guides will be trim enough to drop into your pocket and wise enough to stay by your side throughout your travels.
