For those of you who want to visit Tokyo but don't want to "break the bank", there's a new guide to send you in that direction.
Japan Today reported:
TOKYO —In this era of uber-connected smartphones and tablets, and with every tourist attraction and locality rushing to make travel and navigation apps, I was surprised to find a new guide book out to try and help people discover Tokyo.
Upon seeing the title, “A Cheapo’s Guide To Tokyo,” I was expecting information on tiny and inexpensive capsule hotels, youth hostels and hole-in-the-wall, “one coin” ramen joints. I was pleasantly surprised, however, that it was filled with a plethora of tips on how to best enjoy and experience the sprawling metropolis without breaking the bank — and from the perspective of people that actually live here, not some template-style guide written by those just passing through. This guide is like getting a ton of great advice from that friend in the know who can always get the best deal on anything.Sharp-eyed Godzilla fans will note that the cover of the guide includes the Matsuzakaya department store in Ginza that was demolished by the "Big G" in 1954 and recently demolished to make way for a new shopping complex.
