Traveling to Japan has never been so much fun--visit the land of anime, manga, cosplay, hot springs and sushi

This graphic Japan travel guide is the first of its kind exploring Japanese culture from a cartoonist's perspective. Cool Japan Guide takes you on a fun tour from the high-energy urban streets of Tokyo to the peaceful Zen gardens and Shinto shrines of Kyoto and introduces you to:

  • the exciting world of Japanese food--from bento to sushi and everything in between.
  • the otaku (geek) culture of Japan, including a manga market in Tokyo where artists display and sell their original artwork.
  • the complete Japanese shopping experience, from combini (not your run-of-the-mill convenience stores ) to depato (department stores with everything).
  • the world's biggest manga, anime and cosplay festivals.
  • lots of other exciting places to go and things to do--like zen gardens, traditional Japanese arts, and a ride on a Japanese bullet train.

Whether you're ready to hop a plane and travel to Japan tomorrow, or interested in Japanese culture, this fun and colorful travelogue by noted comic book artist and food blogger Abby Denson, husband Matt, friend Yuuko, and sidekick, Kitty Sweet Tooth, will present Japan in a unique and fascinating way.

Denson outlines what to do ahead of time

Comic book artist and food blogger Denson (Dolltopia) fills this hip and handy travel guide with her expertise as a frequent visitor to Japan and her bright and vibrant illustrations. The drawings feature the artist and her husband, their Japanese friend Yuuko, and Kitty Sweet Tooth (Denson’s cartoon-cat alter ego), who provides language lessons, including a pronunciation guide and common words and phrases. Denson outlines what to do ahead of time, such as purchasing discount transportation tickets and exchanging money, and offers space-saving packing tips. A quick rundown of the public transit system—the Narita Express—ensures you won’t look like a tourist,... See More

and an etiquette lesson explains traditions to observe when visiting a Japanese home. Food and drink topics range from the famously bizarre Japanese vending machines and intricate bento lunch boxes to conveyor-belt sushi and the more formal kaiseki meals of Kyoto. Manga fans will find plenty of activities, including comic conventions, the International Manga Museum, and bookstores with the widest selections. Further recreational recommendations include karaoke and nightlife spots, shrines and temples, arcades, and the eclectic maid (and butler) cafes. First-time visitors may want to seek out a more complete guidebook, but Denson’s artwork and perspective make for an entertaining supplement at the very least.
