Ideal travel guidebook for returning visitors to Japan searching for a deeper cultural experience. 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. 100 towns from all of the country’s 47 prefectures―including some places which may be unfamiliar even to natives of Japan―were carefully selected and reviewed by researchers from over 150 candidate areas, with a focus on nature, culture, food, access, and key dates to visit. Interesting tidbits of local history are also included in each review’s “Did you know?” section, while a taste of subjectivity and a few anecdotes are provided in the “We say” segments. This book is supported by a website ( that includes detailed maps to the attractions, and updates to help readers while on their travels. As well as providing a wealth of travel information in one attractive, easily navigable volume, the book is ideal for casual reading―deepening your understanding of Japan as you pour over the pages.
