Favorite guide books for Japan and other advice for planning?

Jump to last reply

I'm beginning to plan a 3-week family trip to Japan for June 2016 and have been enjoying reading here. I've saved a lot of information, and visited japan-guide.com, but I'd like at least one book from which to get inspiration and information.

DK? Lonely Planet? National Geographic? Fodors? Anything else?

I'm not sure yet if I'll be going - I have mobility issues and, while I don't mind sitting and waiting for my family in areas where I can't manage, I'm not sure if it will hinder them too much... So I'm planning for my husband, my to-be 17yo son and 14-yo daughter, possibly with slow mama along. We're coming from the Pacific Northwest US.

The kids are interested in manga and anime and Japanese culture, my husband doesn't feel like it's a vacation unless he drives 1000 miles (not really exaggerating - he drove 1000 miles on a trip to Hawaii!) but we're looking forward to taking a bullet train, too, and we might be able to convince him to not drive (pros? cons? might be easier for me?). We all love Japanese food, beautiful scenery, and historical sites.

Thanks in advance for any advice you share!
