This is easily the cutest travel book I've ever seen, simple to follow, full of lots of adorable illustrations and information about Japanese language and Japanese Culture. The book starts off with an introduction to Hello Kitty and a little story about how her boyfriend Daniel is coming over to visit her in Japan (ohmysqueeeeeee). He wants to go on lots of adventures, learn all about Japanese traditions, food and popular culture and Hello Kitty is getting ready to take him on an adventure around Japan. After the intro, we dive straight into a map of Japan, taking us through different popular spots and then onto currency, days of the week and seasons.
This book talks you through lots of different topics from conversational information like asking for directions, to explaining what a Kimono is and how to wear one. Everything is written in both English and Japanese so it's a great little book to take with you on holiday to Japan. You can refer to it for tips on food, public transport, festivals and sightseeing.
If you are looking for a Japanese language book, I wouldn't recommend this but if you are looking for a simple reference book, easy to follow and with super cute illustrations, then this guide is for you! I will definitely be packing this in my suitcase to Japan (oh the dream of going to Japan), it's small enough to fit into your bag and really useful to just whip out whenever you are feeling stuck on words or lost in Tokyo!
When I first got this book, I thought it would just be a cute little book to have, I didn't think it would be as detailed as it is. At the very back of the book are emergency details about how to call the police, ambulance etc..also instructions for if an earthquake happens. Honestly, this book has gone way beyond my expectations and would highly recommend it to any Hello Kitty fan who is thinking of going travelling to Japan or just wants to learn some key phrases to help you get by.
Please check out JP Books, that's where I got this book.
