Overview

Nicholas Bornoff describes the best ways to tackle Tokyo and other must-see sites in Japan such as Mount Fuji, imperial Kyoto, historical Nagasaki, Hokkaido and its national parks, and dozens of other major and lesser-known places. In-depth features discuss the fascinating contrasts between Japan's modern, cutting-edge technological facade and its ancient core. The guide highlights traditions such as Kodo drumming, the exquisite beauty of garden design, and the spirits and demons that animate Noh and kabuki theater. Numerous city walking tours, a hike through feudal Hagi, and a stunning array of photos and artwork complement this exciting insider's guide.
