Product Description

Japan Insight Guide offers a uniquely comprehensive approach to getting the most out of one of Asia's most alluring destinations. Engaging 'History and Culture' chapters explain the island's intriguing and proud past, and the factors influencing its future; from ancient Shinto temples and samurai legend, to the impact of Western influences and the tsunami of 2011.

The burgeoning arts and crafts scene, architectural treasures and local cuisine are fully explored and provide essential background information on the islands' distinctive culture and character. The 'Places' chapters cover the islands of Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu in detail and suggest excursions to the smaller surrounding islands.

Full-colour photographs throughout give a true flavour of life in the country today. Detailed maps plot all major sights, and the 'Travel Tips' offer selective advice on where to stay, the best places to eat and on the range of cultural and sporting activities.
