xx Guidebook Correction
« Thread started on: Jul 16th, 2017, 10:45am »

FYI, i received my copy of the new 2017 5th edition of 88 Route Guide. One correction that everyone should note.

On page 10, the hours listed for Post Office ATMs is incorrect, as far as i know. The correct hours for Post Office ATMs in small rural towns, like the vast majority you will pass, are:

9:00am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday
9:00am to 12:30pm, Saturday.
Closed on Sunday and holidays.

In large cities, like the prefectural capitals, there will be what they call a "Central Post Office," and these are frequently open 7 days a week.

In any case, plan carefully. small town and side-of-the-road Post Office ATMs are not open on Sunday.

Hi Dave,

I've been pouring over the 5th edition (my first Henro guide).

Now, though these are few & far between, if I see grammatical errors, would it be alright if I mention them as I see them ? It's usually just a word spelt slightly wrong.

For example,

Page 97, under "Hiking & Outdoor Shops"
Rinku Premium Outlets: short walk from Rinku-town Stn, nect to Kansai Airport Stn

And then a little on down the page

Patagonia: 800m wast of Kochi prefecture office (see page 40L)

A few more....

Map 33, near T26. Down at the Fudo-Iwa Okunoin, it notes that it was "Temple 26 for femails until 1872".

Page 96 "Practical phrases"
"I would lile to use the restroom".
"I'd like to cansel a reservation"

Sorry for the delay.... yes, of course it is OK to send in corrections. I'll pass them on the publisher in case he doesn't see them here.

Thanks!

Two more minor corrections. Just spelling.

Page 85, describing Temple 78, it says that 'Later, Kukai visited here and restored the dilapitated buildings.'

I assume the word intended was 'dilapidated'

Then, on the next page (still map 85), in Sutoku Joko's Story, 'But to prevent his body from discomposing.....'

Discomposing IS a word but I think the intended word was 'decomposing'
