“Away from the bustling cities of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto, there is a hidden Japan – where quiet, bucolic ways of life, and proudly maintained local history and traditions can be found. Japan – 100 Hidden Towns is a guide to this other, off-the-beaten-track, Japan.
After extensive research, our team has selected 100 towns from all of the country’s 47 prefectures – reviewed with a focus on nature, culture, food, access, and key dates – each illustrated with colourful photographs. Information on each of Japan’s eight regions and their major tourist attractions, general advice for travellers, and listings of useful phrases are also provided, helping visitors to maximise the enjoyment of their travels. Japan – 100 Hidden Towns is supported by a website that provides more details and regularly updated information for each town.”
