Japan Travel Guide: The Ultimate Itinerary Planner

Japan Travel Guide: The Ultimate Itinerary Planner.
Japan Travel Guide: The Ultimate Itinerary Planner is a Kindle app designed to take the pain out of planning your itinerary for a trip to Japan.

Japan Travel Guide: The Ultimate Itinerary Planner covers Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and Okinawa.

The guide is not an itinerary of the type detailing how long to spend in each place before moving on to the next. Rather it suggests the places that are must-see and omits those the authors, Christopher Crane and Emma Chan, consider not worth your time.

Each destination is divided into sub-sections: Tradition, Modernity, Eat & Drink, Festivals & Cherry Blossom. The Tokyo section also includes side trips to Yokohama, Kamakura and Mt. Fuji.

Recommended places to see are included in each section along with excellent photographs and useful maps. Thus for Tokyo the authors recommend eating sushi at Tsukiji Market, drinking coffee at Cat Cafe and exploring the French pastries at Tokyo Midtown.

For Kyoto festivals, the big three of Aoi Matsuri, Gion Matsuri and Jidai Matsuri are on the to do list along with the Gozan Fire Festival during Obon in August.

My favorite sections were on Nara and Okinawa. The authors offer some excellent, more off-the-beaten-track suggestions to enjoying these rather less visited destinations. There are some good tips on music festivals and food markets in Okinawa and there's a variety of hidden gems for Nara.

The guide is written in an amusing, light-hearted and carefree style and makes for an excellent planner for your Kindle before any trip to Japan.
