TOKYO: The Complete Residents’ Guide, by Andy Sharp, Beau Miller, Frank Spignese, Jennifer Geaconne-Cruz, Julian Satterthwaite, Karryn Cartelle, Tamsin Bradshaw. Dubai: Explorer Group, Ltd., 2008, 444 pp., profusely illustrated, $14.99 (paper)

This book, says the introduction, “is going to help you to get to know the city, its people, their culture and customs, and much more.” It is not, it avers, just another tourist guidebook. Rather, it is “filled with everything you need to know to make the most of life in Tokyo.” In fact, “from local festivals to finding your dream home, we’ll tell you how and where to do it.”
