About this deal

This practical Guide and Workbook covers all the essential basics you need to ensure your first (or next) trip to Japan is as Amazing as you deserve it to be. There is more novelty and an explosion of choice (and matcha flavors) in the candy, beer and green tea aisles. Luckily, the misplaces shrines/monuments were never to far from where they were mentioned, but I'm glad I double checked.

A Shinto shrine is a place in harmony with nature, where the trees and wind are framed by a giant gate. Under towers of bright lights, French-style maids and cosplay characters tout you to enter maid cafes in Akihabara.

You'll also find our content online, and in mobile apps, videos, 14 languages, armchair and lifestyle books, ebooks, and more, enabling you to explore every day. Home to some of Japan's last primeval forests, you'll find the yakusugi, an ancient cedar native to the island whose giant roots form alien tentacles. If a passport holder a country on the visa-waiver list, you won’t need a visa to travel to Japan if you’re staying for less than 90 days.

Japan’s public transport system is among the best in the world, its jewel the high-tech, high-speed bullet-train network, which is continuously expanding.Detour: Even if you are in Tokyo, the waves and summer beach shacks are just an hour away at Yuigahama Beach in Kamakura. Having visited there they came to the conclusion that, nice as it was, it was a waste of one of their few free evenings. Lonely Planet's Japanese Phrasebook and Dictionary is your handy passport to culturally enriching travels with the most relevant and useful Japanese phrases and vocabulary for all your travel needs.

You'll be developing a deeper connection and understanding of the Japanese people, places and culture. If you are in a position to, read entries about places you already know and see how their description of them tallies with your own real-life experience. I'm trying to get started on planning my trip to Japan, and someone said Lonely Planet is the best travel guide.

Evidentemente, el modelo está cambiando y, por muy actualizada que esté una guía, los países son conjuntos que evolucionan cada día más y lo que ayer molaba puede que hoy no: la única forma de saberlo es a través de Internet. There was less in it to capture your imagination regarding a place, whereas The Rough Guide included all kinds of (on first glance) seemingly leftfield or random details - but information that would reward subsequent visits. Proving that, in spite of my fondness for The Rough Guide, this whole process is about personal viewpoint and preferences. Nevertheless, with the help of the lonely planet guidebook to Japan, and Google Earth, I am on my way.

There are thousands of niche book publishers/imprints around the world and within that group are a good number of travel publishers. Indulge at one of the best whiskey purveyors, Bar Benfiddich, if you can find this hidden, menu-less cocktail speakeasy.Learn your sushi from your sake, enjoy an elaborate tea ceremony and navigate elaborate transit maps; all with your trusted travel companion. Staying in a ryokan room is easy and rewarding – remove your slippers, slide open the shōji paper-screen door, and step across the tatami mat floor of your room to the window. Spring means cherry blossom season in Japan, but the romance is fleeting lasting only for a week or two. Pray to the kami of rice at Kyoto's Fushimi Inari-Taisha and its tunnel of vermillion torii gates, ask for good exam results at plum-tree decorated Tenjin shrine Dazaifu Tenman-gū, or pray for general good luck at what is thought to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, Izumo Taisha. Museums also have new entry systems in place as well, and you’ll likely need to book your spot before showing up.
