"Anyone with even a passing interest in visiting Tokyo someday would do well to seek out this title. It contains valuable information for those unfamiliar with the city as well as a few nuggets even the seasoned Japanophile will find useful." -School Library Journal
"This is a fun and useful guide to Japan's largest city, Tokyo, and for just traveling through Japan in general. The illustrated comic book-like format makes it easy to use, understand, and remember. In general, it helps you to navigate through the town culture so you won't feel so completely out of place. And all of this is both written and illustrated so it's very easy to follow." -Absolute Anime blog
"The book is inherently readable and engaging. It has a lot of practical knowledge on things visitors need to know. The book is great for immersing yourself into the sometimes very different social situations you may encounter and cultural things you may run into, and I enjoyed that the most." -Travel Pulse
"Abby's drawings are simple, yet detailed, but most of all they're incredible colorful and bright, which I really like. Together with funny quotes and personal observations, this book is very easy and enjoyable to read. The illustrations really show Abby's fun personality and makes you look at the city with almost childlike wonder. This is definitely not your average guidebook, which seems fitting for a not so average city." - The Travel Tester
"The author's appealing illustrations range from restaurant gimmicks, such as a clown driving robotic ladies, to beautiful Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. Illustrated descriptions by Matt and Yuuko add to the fun. VERDICT This title will be helpful when planning a trip to Japan or for pure 'stay at home' entertainment." -Library Journal
