Super Cheap Tokyo guidebook out now!

I’m delighted to announce that Super Cheap Tokyo, the new book from Super Cheap Japan, is out now! It took me a lot of work to do, but I think I’ve finally come up with the perfect guide for traveling in the capital on a budget. It’s available now on,, and all good bookstores near you.

With this book, I took the Tokyo chapters from the Super Cheap Japan book, then tweaked and added to them based on all your feedback. I then wrote loads more chapters, so that you’ll be able to explore all over Tokyo and Kanto with this book, from the top tourist spots to some off-the-beaten-track spots. If you would like to read a sample chapter, or get more information, please have a look here.

If you are a member of the press, please feel free to contact me if you would like a review copy, would like to do an interview or collaborate in any way. You can also read the press kit here.

This is a self-published book, so I have done everything, from writing to marketing to sales. But I’m so happy with the result! Please share this post with your friends to help spread the word 😀
