Ever wonder about just what Japan looks like today? Then this book is for you! Join Brian and Michael on their first visit to this incredible country.
Follow them to temples and shrines, and see the wonderful mix of today's culture with Japan's ancient culture. See the Ginza, The Imperial Palace, The Great Buddha of Kamakura, the shrine at Hachiman-gu, and the world's busiest intersection in Shibuya, Japan. Witness a tea ceremony, and see Japan as a bird would from Yokohama's Landmark Tower, and visit Tsukiji Fish Market — the world's largest wholesale fish and seafood market.
This book has been 7 months in the making, and contains 476 photos out of the 2,200 taken on this week-long adventure in November of 2008. Also included is a section with some essential words and phrases, and photos describing everyday items in both Japanese and English.
