Not an Ordinary Travel Guide to Japan

Visiting well-kept, centuries-old landmarks while enjoying super-modern technology and kitsch pop culture––traveling around Japan is like traveling through time. COOL JAPAN: A Guide to Tokyo, Kyoto, Tohoku and Japanese Culture Past and Present, written by Sumiko Kajiyama, delves into each era and issue from a unique perspective. The ancient city of Kyoto is viewed from the perspectives of popular Japanese heroes, including Hikaru Genji (the protagonist of Murasaki Shikubu’s eleventh-century novel, The Tale of Genji), Oda Nobunaga (a sixteenth-century warlord who introduced innovative cultural concepts and governing systems), and Sakamoto Ryoma (a reformer at the dawn of Japan’s modernization in the mid-nineteenth century). The Tokyo section of the guide, however, presents a contrast between the traditional and futuristic elements of the city. The book also features the Tohoku region, which is often disregarded in guidebooks for foreign tourists, although it is historically and culturally rich. The region is described with an emphasis on its ancient aristocratic culture, poetry, and folklore. With 470 color photos, 17 color maps, and more than 170 listings for tourist attractions, COOL JAPAN is a great travel guide, but it is also a wonderful introduction to Japanese history and culture.
