"There are helpful phrases to learn; important social cues to recognize; tips on where to visit, along with addresses and websites; guides to visiting hot baths; and more ... The overall result is a love song to a city and an inspiration for prospective visitors. -Booklist "Starred Review"
"Cool Tokyo Guide is a "must-read" for anyone planning their once-in-a-lifetime trip, and also a delightful browse for armchair travelers!" -Midwest Book Review
"...the strongest point of the guide is the author's personality, which, along with those of her traveling companions, infuses the book with youthful energy and a spirit of joyful exploration. Cool Tokyo Guide might not look like a traditional guidebook, but for many travelers-actual or armchair-it will become a favorite. -Foreword Magazine "Starred Review"
"The book is inherently readable and engaging. It has a lot of practical knowledge on things visitors need to know. The book is great for immersing yourself into the sometimes very different social situations you may encounter and cultural things you may run into, and I enjoyed that the most." -Travel Pulse
"Abby's drawings are simple, yet detailed, but most of all they're incredible colorful and bright, which I really like. Together with funny quotes and personal observations, this book is very easy and enjoyable to read. The illustrations really show Abby's fun personality and makes you look at the city with almost childlike wonder. This is definitely not your average guidebook, which seems fitting for a not so average city." - The Travel Tester
"The author's appealing illustrations range from restaurant gimmicks, such as a clown driving robotic ladies, to beautiful Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. Illustrated descriptions by Matt and Yuuko add to the fun. VERDICT This title will be helpful when planning a trip to Japan or for pure 'stay at home' entertainment." -Library Journal
"Anyone with even a passing interest in visiting Tokyo someday would do well to seek out this title. It contains valuable information for those unfamiliar with the city as well as a few nuggets even the seasoned Japanophile will find useful." -School Library Journal
"A comic book writer's off-beat, upbeat tour of Tokyo, Cool Tokyo...offers a fun approach to this magnificent Asian city, and it's a smart choice for travelers who want to know more and not get bored with data and statistics. The illustrations are fun and meant to make you smile while gathering information about local customs, places to visit, food to eat and much more..." -LIDEA Magazine
