Handy, pocketable guidebooks including pull-out map. All
Encounter books are now in stock in Tokyo
The new Encounter
series from Lonely Planet is similar to Lonely Planet's "Best of" and "Condensed" quick
city guides. Unlike those tall thin books, Encounter books are shorter,
fatter, and even more colorful. They are very easy to display. Fine for
people taking quick trips, shopping and seeing the sights and sites.
Not hotel guides. Not as comprehensive as the larger full city guides such as "Tokyo City
Guide 6th edition".
