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)
