ought this one for the wife, a sort of statement of intent thing for our trip next year to Japan (which I want to do cold in Tokyo and she wants to do prepped on a tour. So yes, still sorting out things). But it’s a very interesting approach to trip-planning, a girlish comic book of traveling to Japan, all filled with bright burn-your-eyes-out color and girlish comics of all the things you’ll need to know.
Look, it’s not Fodars, but it’s a lot of fun.
So Abby’s been to Japan lots. Of course she has – she’s young and into Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen (sez so right on the cover). But she has traveled the island nation up and down it and has all sorts of advice, from language tutoring to train ticket purchasing. It was actually lain out in cleverly organized order (the section on food has me wanting to try a lot of different dishes, and for people who know how food-finicky I am, that’s saying a lot).
And it’s not long, just a colorful first step. But I kinda have a better expectation of what JB and I are getting into. So yes, there is that.
Anyway, for people prepping for a trip to that wonderful land on the other side of the globe (or simply for older people who’d like to know how young people think and view the world (and yes, she is one cheerfully-positive girl)) this one’s for you.
Can’t wait to go now!
