The Rough Guide to Japan

Book Description

Now available in ePub format.

The award-winning Rough Guide to Japan makes the ideal travel companion to one of the world's most unique and dynamic countries.

In full color throughout, this opinionated guide is packed with essential information on the latest and best places to sleep, eat, party and shop and includes pointers on etiquette and other cultural niceties. Maps of all the main tourist destinations and easy-to-read color transportation maps of the Tokyo and Osaka train and subway systems help you navigate the major cities.

From neon-soaked Tokyo to temple-studded Kyoto and snow-topped Mount Fuji, all of the major travel hotspots are covered in full, and The Rough Guide to Japan also points the way to off-the-beaten-track gems: Soak in a live-volcano hot spring on Kyushu island, go diving in tropical Okinawa, or wind your way through mountain traverses in the Japan Alps.

You'll also find a richer understanding of the country through chapters on Japan's history, religions, arts, movies, music, and pressing environmental issues.

Make the most of your time with The Rough Guide to Japan.
