“Japan’s World Heritage Sites” by John Dougill:
A few days ago, I received my very own copy of “Japan’s World Heritage Sites” by John Dougill, a British citizen living in Kyoto for a good many years. John has written many books about Japanese tradition, culture and religion, and this one is my favourite. This book covers all World Heritage sites of Japan and is in an atlas format, abundant with many eye catching photographs. Johns journey starts in Hokkaido and he travels slowly all the way south, his last destination the Ogasawara Islands. Each site covered has and extensive explanation about its history, how to get there and many beautiful pictures.
