Subway Exit Guide to Tokyo

** Read our exciting Internet Interview with Boye Lafayette De Mente as he tells us about his fascinating writing career......

I read voraciously when I was in my early teens (mostly science fiction and westerns) and knew by the time I was 15 that I was intended to be a writer. As with many embryo writers, my first efforts were poetry and epigrams (Oh, the wisdom of youth!).

     I served one term in the Navy (from the age of 17 to 20) then switched to the Army Security Agency (ASA). While in the Navy I honed my writing skills by writing letters to girls whom I had never met!  I remember one of them ended the correspondence, saying she thought it was getting too deep.

     After switching to the ASA and being assigned to Tokyo, Japan in 1949, I originated a weekly newspaper on my own time. The paper was popular enough that ASA Tokyo reassigned me as the full-time editor/publisher in 1950. I have been earning my keep as a journalist/writer ever since.

Each of these guidebooks and travel books are different!

The Lonely Planet series are for the traveler looking for a rich but very inexpensive experience ("On a Shoestring"), they usually include an extensive listing of history, culture, lodgings and restaurants.

The Blue Guides, Knopf Guides, Michelin Green Books and Insight Guides cover only the cultural aspects of a city or country, thus you will need an additional guidebook for hotels and restaurants.

The Rough Guides and the Let's Go series are for students or the budget traveler that cover lodgings, restaurants, cultural and the sights.

The Fodor's and Frommer's guidebooks will be great for the less experienced traveler who wants moderate priced lodgings and to stay "on-the-beaten-track". They are comprehensive books that provide everything one needs including lodgings, restaurants, cultural and the sights.

PBS's Rick Steves believes in spending less money and experiencing a more enjoyable trip which he calls "Through the Back Door".

There are other books listed that are not guidebooks but will assist the traveler explore the country or regions they are traveling to. Enjoy!!
