Book: Seeing Japan
Before we left Japan to return home to Canada last year, we bought a 3 book set containing Seeing Japan, Seeing Tokyo and Seeing Kyoto. This set was published by Kodansha International in 2005, about 100 pages and a cost of US$25 each.
Seeing Japan is written by Charles Whipple and an excellent book describing all the regions or islands of Japan, containing a number of full-color pictures.
Seeing Tokyo is written by Kaori Shoji, covering most of the districts or areas which make up the Tokyo metropolis, where we lived for over 2 1/2 years. Just like the other books in this series, there are a number of full—color pictures and brings back many good memories.
Seeing Kyoto is written by Juliet Carpenter, capturing the essence of this ancient and traditional city, the former capital of Japan.
Overall, this is a very nice coffee table book set and sits on the coffee table in our living room.
