Phrases are provided not just with romanized pronunciation but also in kanji, which is *tremendously* helpful -- as you can point out the phrase to a Japanese speaker if the two of you are having difficulty understanding each other. The book is definitely geared towards tourists and travellers, but offered a broader range of phrases and vocabulary than I expected (the word for "suntanned"? phrases for getting a haircut?). Sprinkled throughout are various minor cultural & travel notes, such as typical bank hours, notes on major holidays, descriptions of the different kinds of payphones you might encounter, drinking etiquette, etc.
All this, and it can be tucked into your back pocket! Crazy! The book is compact, but I personally found the layout & type-size quite easy to read -- particularly as the translations next to each phrase are printed in green ink, so they stand out from the word you're looking up. I did find that while the mini dialogue boxes were helpful in familiarizing myself with particular basic conversation constructions, they were often placed in not necessarily instinctive spots in the glossary (for instance, a dialogue about whether a hotel has a single room for the night & how much it costs was in the "n" section -- presumably for "night").
It's not going to make you fluent by any means (and if you think a mini phrasebook can do that for you, more power to you!), but it is a marvelous little tool for getting around, particularly with a little studying behind you. I took a few basic phrases gained from beginning Pimsleur lessons and this little phrasebook with me on a three-week trip to Japan, and was able to communicate the necessities throughout -- often with hilarious results, as my conversational partner and I came to an understanding through trading one or two word exchanges and clumsily constructed sentences in each other's language. Highly recommended, and well worth the $6 or so it will run you.
