Full Description

Cherry blossoms, Mt. Fuji, tatami mats, karaoke, manga, geishas, samurais, sushi, ramen, and sake – all this, and more, is Japan! This lavishly illustrated book invites you to explore the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’, a country of 6,852 islands and 127 million people, a place of extraordinary beauty with a fascinating cultural heritage. In vivid colour photography and insightful texts, Japan presents fire-spitting volcanoes and steaming hot springs, opulent buildings of the imperial dynasties and graceful temples. From Hokkaido to the island of Honshu, where you’ll find the busy metropolis of Tokyo and the imperial city of Kyoto, to the natural wonders of the smaller islands, this journey of discovery brings you to devotional places of tranquility amidst the metropolitan bustle, contemplative lakes picturesquely situated at the foot of steeply rising volcanoes, traditional gardens framed by modern skyscrapers, and much more.
