Fun, interesting and useful read, especially if you are an otaku! At first, the tone makes it a little hard to cypher who the book is geared to as the voice starts off a bit immature and I thought this might be a book for children or teens but once it got going it is obviously intended for geeky adults. The author and her husband take in a lot of entertainment that includes alcoholic beverages and adult only entrance. However, there are plenty of places mentioned that can be included on a family-oriented trip, too. Names, addresses, websites and contact information are also provided. From packing and reservations to food and festivals, everything you can imagine is mentioned. Personally, I'm not a traveller but I love Japanese culture and found the book an entertaining and amusing read. A wide variety of readers will enjoy this delightful book.
