    A MANGA LOVER’S TOKYO TRAVEL GUIDE is a fun and helpful guide to traveling in Tokyo. Even if you’ve been to Tokyo before, this book also acts as the author’s travel diary that readers can compare their own travel experiences to. Unlike some travel guides that are dense and somewhat confusing, this book is easy to understand and has detailed drawings to visually convey the tips outlined by the author. Tokyo travelers can use this book as a starting point to planning the perfect trip! This book is A MANGA LOVER’S TOKYO TRAVEL GUIDE is a fun and helpful guide to traveling in Tokyo.

Unlike some travel guides that are dense and somewhat confusing, this book is easy to understand and has detailed drawings to visually convey the tips outlined by the author. Tokyo travelers can use this book as a starting point to planning the perfect trip! This book is equal parts cute, funny, and informative! As someone who has traveled to Tokyo many times, this book has some awesome tips that I’ve used before and I learned some new ones too. This guide is jam packed with facts and tips from common phrases you might need to know to helpful websites and resources for planning your trip. The comics are very detailed and fun to read, and the book is visually appealing. Neo even covers some more “niche” activities such as maid/butler cafes, and a personal favorite of mine: The Studio Ghibli Museum. The one critique I have is that I wish the book was organized into sections. There is a ton of info (which is great), but I think it would’ve helped to group the content and have a clear intro and conclusion. But overall, it’s a great book to pick up! Perfect for people planning a trip to Tokyo, or those who want to learn about Japan in general! *A free copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

    This book is what the more famous Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen should have been (seriously, have mercy for your eyes and don't pick up that one under any circumstances - it's drawn in MS Paint). I absolutely loved the artist's style. I imagine this would be a reference book rather than a one-time read, the book is filled with practical, useful information.

    A Manga Lover's Tokyo Travel Guide was a cute read; however, it was not quite what I expected. Given the title and blurb, I had anticipated a strong focus on otaku hot spots. Some of these were mentioned, but it didn't feel like the driving force of the book, which also included shrine etiquette, tips for visiting the lakes and Mount Fuji etc. While this information was interesting and useful, it really had nothing to do with being a manga fan. Therefore I am giving this book three and a half st A Manga Lover's Tokyo Travel Guide was a cute read; however, it was not quite what I expected.

Therefore I am giving this book three and a half stars. It was a nicely presented work with some good information, but I felt its contents were somewhat misrepresented. If you are looking for a book whose sole focus is tips for the otaku visitor, it would be better to check out Tuttle's other title, Tokyo Geek's Guide.

    The author gives her tips and tricks to visiting Tokyo, Japan -- especially for manga and anime fans like herself -- in comic format. The illustrations are adorable, and the reviews are honest. It makes readers want to visit the city, or at least eat a delicious Japanese meal and watch a Ghibli film.

    Lovely art, definitely very personal, ultimately not exactly what I was looking for but I love the food sections.

I am just now starting to hypothetically "plan" a trip to Japan (aka start looking into the country in hopes of one day getting to go there) so this was absolutely perfect. This would NOT be for someone trying to plan a lot of specific details for a trip. It really is a first step type of thing.

I am just now starting to hypothetically "plan" a trip to Japan (aka start looking into the country in hopes of one day getting to go there) so this was absolutely perfect. This would NOT be for someone trying to plan a lot of specific details for a trip. It really is a first step type of thing. I did manage to take several pages of notes (because I am that neurotic), so maybe it is more useful than I initially gave it credit for... It had some fun suggestions, covered some basic etiquette that your average American would not know, and gives you just enough to make you want to learn more about this wonderful country! I could have done with fewer shopping suggestions, but I am also not a huge shopper so I guess I shouldn't say anything. This book drew my eye because I am an occasional Otaku (I go through phases where I am obsessed with all things Manga/Anime, to going months or years without touching it). Regardless, I think that Japanese culture is so fascinating from an American POV and I would LOVE to travel to Japan just to experience being there. Unlike most places where I was to see the natural and manmade sights, I feel like I would be happy just BEING in Japan. Of course, I want to see the sights as well, but I am probably more excited just by the idea of walking down a Japanese street, eating Japanese food, going to Japanese stores... even just going to a Japanese convenience store! Eating cheap Japanese junk food as well as traditional Japanese meals... And with that, I should probably stop ranting. We will see if I ever do make it to Japan.

    Evangeline Neo gives readers recommendations on what to see, how to get there, what to buy, where and what to eat, and cultural tips about visiting Tokyo. This is an excellent, detailed book of tips for travelers to Tokyo. I appreciate how detailed Neo's instructions are and maps with things like what exit to take from a subway station or price options for travel and eating. There's even a little crash course in Japanese at the beginning and some things to do and not do in Japanese culture.

Of course post-covid who knows how many of these things will still be relevant, but it is one of the best graphic travel guides I've seen. Recommended for those headed to Tokyo...eventually. Notes on content: No language issues. There's a page where she warns parents about naughty magazines that are sold in convenience stories (illustrations of women in bikini type get up). Another page shows a statue of a woman with a very low neck line in one of the tourist locations. She talks about going to hot springs but keeps everything covered in illustrations. No violence.

    I'm going to buy this book--it is THAT good. It very succinctly explains everything that a newbie to Tokyo would need to know, along with interesting anecdotes. The graphic novel style makes it an easy, and far more accessible, read than most travel books. Honestly, I felt a little overwhelmed at the prospect of traveling to Tokyo (even though I really, REALLY wanted to), but this book made such an adventurous vacation seem very doable--and super fun!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Lots of good tips for places to go and things to do and eat in Japan. Love that the book was in manga form but I wish there was a list at the end of the book with all the links and locations that were in the book. It would've been nice if there were recommendations on where to eat or what to do if you have special dietary needs like celiac. Lots of good tips for places to go and things to do and eat in Japan.

    Wonderful guide for those of us that want to enjoy reading about places through the eyes of someone who has actually been there. For those that liked Diary of a Tokyo Teen and Japan Ai : The Adventures of a Tall Girl in Japan, will find themselves at home. This is definitely something I would want to have to prepare for a trip or just a insight in Japanese culture.

    This was very informative, very cute, and makes me want to go to Japan even more! I loved the sections on dollar store equivalents and the shop recommendations. No one book can be an authoritative, "here is everything you need to know," but this was very interesting, definitely helps steer one in the right direction, and is way easier/faster to read than most guides.

    It's like having a friend show you around town! In other words, you're only going to see a few carefully chosen attractions, rather than have a whole array of options to choose from. I liked the colorful artwork and the honest takes on the ways travel can be confusing and a hassle. This book will help prepare you with things to watch out for and what to expect when visiting these sites! It's like having a friend show you around town!

    This is a lovely depiction of Tokyo in a kawaii format. Having been to Japan a few times, I was familiar with most aspects, though enjoyed reading about them again. Learnt a few things and as I'm looking at planning another trip to Japan, good timing! This is a lovely depiction of Tokyo in a kawaii format.

    Cute! Just a. LOT of information. Don’t be surprised if a lot of this stuff goes over your head! Honestly, may be best to read with a computer/google earth or maps to fully conceptualize where and what she’s talking about. Can’t wait to go to Japan!
