904 pages! Bigger than the last edition. I updated the Tokyo chapter for this one. Included: a walking tour of the historic Yanaka district, a picture guide to the highlights inside the Tokyo National Museum, ramen tips from chef Ivan Orkin and unintuitive places to see cherry blossoms (like Aoyama Cemetery).
Lots of great trip planning info in the front of the book as well: If you haven’t picked up a Lonely Planet guide in a few years, you’d be surprised! Full color sample itineraries, country-wide overviews on skiing and hiking, and lots of tips for first-timers and repeat visitors.
