This guide is designed for optimal navigation on eReaders, smartphones, and other mobile electronic devices. It is indexed alphabetically and by category, making it easier to access individual articles. Articles feature information about attractions, landmarks, districts, transportation, cultural venues, dining, history and much more. Addresses, telephones, hours of operation and admissions information are included. The guide is complemented by clearly marked maps that are linked to city attractions. An interlinked phrasebook as well as a pronunciation guide are included.
This travel guide also features an itinerary with our suggestions for your travel route. Itineraries include links to individual attraction articles.
NEW FEATURE: The attraction articles now include links to Google Maps. On a dedicated electronic reader with a slow connection and a primitive browser, Google Maps will display the attraction on the map along with metro stations, roads, and nearby attractions. On an internet-enabled device such as the iPhone and the iPad, Google Maps will even show you the route from your current location to the attraction you want to go to.

Great travel book
I am excited to begin using this book on my next trip to Japan! I have come to love using travel books on my iPhone and iPad instead of traditional print books. The interactive nature (Google maps, etc) will definitely help make our trip easier. The info contained in this book is very comprehensive.
The best Tokyo ebook out there!
This is a fun and informative ebook. Useful combination of sightseeing and activity suggestions. The descriptions of locations are accurate. The color photos are wonderful. The guide also has some useful Japanese words and phrases. It’s a good jumping off ebook for planning a trip. I used this guide on my recent voyage to Tokyo. I had a most enjoyable week there, but I wouldn't have had so many wonderful experiences without this guide.
Travel Tokyo - Needs update
Seemed like a good table of content. But almost none of the images are displayed with the latest ios. You have ? all over the place.
