by. Having had my life-long dream of visiting Japan come true, I figured I might as well read a serious guide book I never really manage to read a guide book 'properly'. I love the idea of a short one, but not its actual content. from a safe distance.

I have read and browsed many of the most popular travel books about Japan, but I honestly found the National Geographic guide to be the most enjoyable read

How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals" by Sy Montgomery This is a beautiful book - essential reading for anyone who loves animals and knows how much they can teach us about being human. I have read and browsed many of the most popular travel books about Japan, but I honestly found the National Geographic guide to be the most enjoyable read. Other guides, like Lonely Planet, Fodor's, etc. are full of unwarranted negativity, which doesn't make the trip sound fun at all.

I’m sitting on the polished wooden steps of a 300-year-old farmhouse in Japan’s Iya Valley, looking out on a succession of mountain folds densely covered in deep green cedars. Skeins of morning mist rise from the valley floor, hang in wispy balls in the air, and tangle in the surrounding slopes. No other houses are visible. The only sound is the drip of predawn rain from nearby branches and from the farmhouse’s roof of thick thatch.

  • A three-way winner. Outstanding for use before, during, and after trips to Japan. Photographs are extensive and stunning. Text is well organized and description are first rate. Provides a fine balance between must-visit destinations on and off tourist beaten paths (especially in Western, Southern, and extreme Northern Japan . I have discovered that even native Japanese are impressed when they see it! First time visitors (and even seasoned travelers) will find this book valuable when showing others where they have been (and plan to go next time) as well as an user-friendly aid when trying to remember (and learning to pronounce) the names of favorite Japanese destinations. (I also usually take a copy to meetings/gatherings related to Japan, since it can help to “break the ice.”) Each edition is pretty similar, but you may end up buying the latest one as a result of literally wearing out older editions.

  • I bought this book for my son. He's read it from cover to cover! He plans on visiting Japan and hopes to one day live there. This book has opened his eyes and given him a good idea of what to do and where to go. I would recommend this book to other travelers.

  • My son, who is living in Japan bought this book for us prior to our trip to Japan for his wedding.I in turn, bought this book for my brother who is also traveling to Japan soon. it is interesting and helpful

  • "Japan (The National Geographic Traveler)" is an above-average guidebook for those doing a tour of Japan, or for those who are interested in what Japan has to offer. Utilizing the National Geographic's excellent collection of photographs and information, they have assembled one of the most eye-popping and enticing guides to Japan that I have seen, and I have seen quite a few of them.
    The various regions of Japan are well-covered, with an emphasis on major locations, sights and activities. There is not much "off-the-beaten" path type of information, but that is not what this kind of guide is for. The locations that are covered are covered very well, with both information, best times to visit and so one. Wisely, there is little in the way of pricing information, as this is quickly outdated. The experience of National Geographic is well-leveraged, giving a more informed picture over the "Eyewitness" guides.
    I recommend this guide to anyone who is interested in or considering a trip to Japan, but is somewhat unfamiliar with the country and what it has to offer. There is plenty here to pique your interest.

  • Whoever glances through this book will automatically be stunned by the top-notch pictures that reveals the scenery of today's Japan. By saying so, I shall break the neck to a widespread idea in Western countries that Japan is merely an industrial dump with Mt Fuji overlooking it. One has to acknowledge that this (false) statement is true in Tokyo and Osaka-Kobe, but the 95% portion of the country remaining is just scenic, as portrayed in the book.
    National Geographic's long experience in combining excellent information feedback and outstanding pictures, has resulted in this series "National Geographic Traveler" that revolutionizes the way to dicover far-away countries and cultures.
    I very strongly recommand you to buy this book as soon as you're slightly keen on Japan and its culture. I'm now planning a trip there for next summer!!!

  • I have read and browsed many of the most popular travel books about Japan, but I honestly found the National Geographic guide to be the most enjoyable read. Other guides, like Lonely Planet, Fodor's, etc. are full of unwarranted negativity, which doesn't make the trip sound fun at all. National Geographic does an EXCELLENT job of highlighting many worthwhile sites, and the reviews are written to get you excited about your trip!

    It is most useful for planning the trip. There are not many maps in the book however, compare that to the INACCURATE and outdated maps of Lonely Planet really doesn't make it such a terrible thing. There are typically information centers in or just outside train stations, so you shouldn't have problems getting around.

    Those looking to plan an enjoyable trip should seriously consider purchasing this book!

  • I think this book is a real good one! And I recommend it to everybody who's interested in history, culture, etc. I went to Tokyo and Kyoto with it, and I was able to understand many things, and to see a lot!

    There's great pictures, detailed map, and smart comments. The author really understand the country from the inside.

    Excellent book !

  • The book it' s ok, the pictures are lovely but it is not a walk guide book it's a book more for preparing the trip instead that traveling with it.
