Publisher's Comments

Up-to-date in content, beautifully illustrated with color photos, packed with bilingual lists of vital words and phrases, and overflowing with helpful travel advice, this book is a perfect take-along for both business and vacation travelers to Japan. Page edges are color-tipped--a different color for each section--so that on-the-go travelers can refer to any one of 17 separate general topics and find the information they're looking for in a hurry. Color-coded topics include:

  • Culture and customs
  • Making travel arrangements in Japanese
  • Words and phrases for telling time, days of the week, seasons, and colors
  • Getting around in Japan via public transit, driving, or bicycling
  • Food and dining
  • Cultural sites, such as museums, theaters, and sports arenas
  • Many others

    A substantial red-coded section in this book is devoted to vocabulary. It gives travelers a bilingual dictionary in two sections--from Japanese to English and from English to Japanese. Small enough for easy packing with travel luggage, and featuring a clear, vinyl jacket that will stand up to the wear and tear of many journeys, this book is both practical and good-looking. Titles in Barron's Traveler's Language Guides series are available for seven different languages and countries.
