Japan is wonderful for history buffs, whether focusing on ancient Jomon artefacts, the Kofun tombs that gave name to that period, the culture and lifestyle of the Edo period, or the dramatic changes of westernisation during the Meiji era. There are plenty of ruins and reconstructions of castles dotted around Japan, and many towns have local museums where they proudly expound on their own historical luminaries. Use Japan – 100 Hidden Towns to find the unique historical claims of the featured towns and how the past shapes the present throughout Japan.
