Although I am Japanese-American, my knowledge of the food culture was fairly limited when I visited the land of my birth three years ago. This book allowed me to seek out the more traditional dishes I heard about in my childhood. There are terrific sections focused on home cooking traditions, the components of a standard Japanese banquet, and a detailed rundown of regional variations and foreign influences, in particular, from China and Korea. Like other books in the series, this one ends with a definitive culinary dictionary, a quick-reference glossary and useful phrases when you order food and drink there. Ashburne also includes recipes, city and regional maps highlighting his favorite eateries, and entertaining essays, such as the social history of curry rice and the schedule of activities at the legendary Tsukiji Fish Market. Even though Ashburne makes the food come alive through his prose, the colorful photographs really make this one indispensable when planning a trip there.
I pretty much can't stand Lonely Planet travel guides anymore with all their misinformation, cramming of hippie garbage down the reader's throat, and creating new beaten paths rather than encouraging creative travel. That being said, some of their other books are still pretty good, and this is one of them. It's just a fun read and gives you lots to think about when out sampling the local cuisine. This is more of a subjective book written by a real person with a brain and then given the LP stamp, rather than the mass-produced, thrown-together, always meant for LP kind of book.
Seven months in Japan and I was quite happy to have this around, but it's obviously extremely important to ask the locals wherever you are what else there is to eat. It's also interesting to read even if you don't get to Japan, but like food as much as I do.
