The Little Book of Japan provides an armchair cultural, spiritual, and monumental tour of the Land of the Rising Sun from a mostly traditional perspective. An excellent small gift for both travelers and homebodies. --Foreword magazine
The Little Book of Japan, published by Tuttle, is great for the coffee table or backpack and will whet your appetite for a trip to Japan. Flipping through The Little Book of Japan, you get a visual overview of all that's awesome about Japan. You will want to go if you haven't been yet, and even if you live there...you will suddenly feel the urge to cover more ground. I would go so far as to say that even after seeing photos of places you've been to, you'll want to return. Its 192 pages are, if anything, inspiring. --About.com
Charlotte Anderson has taken on the subject of Japan, including culture, religion, history, geography, and covers it all in concise paragraphs lavishly illustrated by the photos of Gorazd Vilhar. Normally, a book with so many stunning images would be a coffee table extravaganza, but in bonsai style, The Little Book of Japan, contains its essence in 191 pages that fit within a bright red cover that is just six inches by six inches. The size makes it an easy book for the traveler to take along as a Japan guidebook, even though it is not the traditional guide to places to sleep and eat. --A Traveler's Library
Covering a broad range of topics for the first time visitor, yet comprehensive enough for the truly Japan-obsessed, The Little Book of Japan is certainly not small in scope. This book offers a sneak peek into one of the world's most fascinating places. --The Japan Times
Having spent a while living in Japan and having traveled to all of the four main islands and everywhere between, I can say that this book covers a great distance and hits most of the major stops that any tourist will see...ItAEs like your own little journey through Japan. --Castle View Academy blog
