"For the picture-oriented traveler to Japan, this should absolutely be in your suitcase. (It's light enough, so no worries there.) Take it with you to the sushi bar and use the page that describes every type of fish you may eat in full color. Take it with you to the flea market so you can identify your bargains. Take it with you to your ryokan, so you know exactly how to act on that trip to the public bath. This book is not only 'pretty', but useful as well. And boy, does it make me wish I could draw!" —Uncovering Japan
"It's a fun little book with lively and brightly colored stretches of nearly every aspect of Japanese daily life and tradition. Reynolds dissects the many dishes of a ryokan ryori (those elaborate meals you get when you stay in a traditional Japanese inn), she breaks down what's in those street corner vending machines (the food, the drink, and the porn), and she sifts through the styles of sumo. She does this for pretty much every major aspect of Japanese life. Clueless in Tokyo
is both a solid reference guide and a comical softcover for the coffee table." — GoJapan.About.com
