      This book helps people to discover the land of rising sun

      I'm a big fan of DK and to be honest I've several guides. Sometimes I just buy them because I love to know more about other places.
      It's enjoyable to read the information that this travel guide has to offer. I loved this one in particular because I went to Japan. It's well organized, shows a lot of places and monuments but there are very few hotel and restaurant recommendations. The organization of the matters is remarkable and the colorfulness too. I didn't feel bored while reading it but it lacks detail in some information and should be updated.

      Unlike other guides you can get an idea of what places and attractions look like thanks to the amazing pictures that the book has. This is especially helpful in a country like Japan, which has many Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. Another weakness I found on this book is that it is heavily focused on Tokyo and Kyoto. What about other minor places? Japan is much more than just Kyoto and Tokyo. Around that two main tourist spots there are others worth of being mentioned and explored deeply. Despite the small lacks that this travel guide has, I'd definitely buy it again. Nowadays we've the internet that's our main resource for everything but this book is a complement and helped me in several situations because WiFi is not eternal. When technology fails, books sometimes are main supporters and that happened to me.
      Thanks to DK travel guide I had a wonderful vacation in japan and discovered many places.
