The next day I picked up Frommer's again. The layout was easier to navigate and there were a lot more hotels to select from. But it still wasn't enough. Trying to book places during Japan's Golden Week is well, hell. I needed more options! So last night on the way home from work, I repurchased the Lonely Planet (the folks at Barnes & Noble must love me). This morning I checked Amazon.com to see if they had better prices and ended up ordering Time Out Tokyo, The Old Guide to Kyoto, and Tokyo Atlas - The Bilingual Map.
And esoterico lent me the Lonely Planet's Best of Tokyo yesterday. Uh, yea. I suppose this is what happens when I decide to leave the itinerary at home. I've somehow convinced myself that the only way to travel is to memorize all possible combinations of things that I could do in Japan.
