Inspiring photography, insider tips, cultural interpretation, and expert advice are hallmarks of these bestselling travel guides, ensuring a more authentic, enriching experience of the destination.

In Japan, spring bursts onto the scene with the splendor of blooming cherry trees (sakura), the symbol of life. This is the most popular season for visitors, who enjoy the tranquility of the Zen gardens, however, the narrow archipelago of Japan offers considerable cultural and geographical variety, with interesting attractions and places to visit throughout the seasons. Attractions range from the snowcapped volcano of Mount Fuji to tropical atolls and the frenzied metropoles of Tokyo and Kyoto--the imperative experiences of Japan could fill an entire lifetime. National Geographic brings all the aspects of the culture, history, and traditions of the places to visit. Walking itineraries, with maps, include Shibuya-ku, Ueno, Hakodate, Hagi and the route from Magome to Tsumago. Among the excursions, there are visits to the wonderful Japanese gardens, to the Peace Park in Hiroshima and to the national parks of Akan and Kushiro-Shitsugen. It is possible to follow the pilgrim paths of Kumano Kodo or take whale-watching trips along the coasts. The travel advice for the eight main islands and regions includes the most interesting cities, towns, and regions of Japan, helping visitors discover one of the most famous and complex tourist destinations of Asia.
