Kyoto was once the imperial capital of Japan, but today it is principally known outside of the country for the Kyoto Protocol (full name: Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), which is an international treaty on climate change.

Product Description:
What better way to see Kyoto than at dawn, when the back streets and alleys of this 1,200-year-old city are still under the spell of the past? Old folks fuss about with their bonsai and laundry poles, pausing to chat on their way to the neighborhood shrine with flowers and morning prayers. Knock-kneed white egrets stalk the stream beds for breakfast, and the giant bronze temple bells awaken the former capital of Japan every morning as they have done for centuries.

Through wars, fires, famines, tyrants, and now rapid modernization, the old neighborhoods of Kyoto are the places where the customs and traditions of this fascinating city, with its confusing blend of old and new, have managed to survive.

American writer and former Kyoto resident Diane Durston introduces seven must-see precincts of this ancient capital city, including four Historic Preservation Districts. Among them are the world-famous geisha quarter, the kimono textile neighborhoods, the sake-brewing area of Fushimi, and the tea-growing region of Uji. Durston weaves together local lore and historical sites to create a panoply of provocative walking tours that take the reader back in time to the elegance of earlier days.

Accompanying each section is a full-color map and the fine photography of Katsuhiko Mizuno, a Kyoto native and one of the city's most famous photographers. Sections highlighting Kyoto crafts, cuisine, festivals, and tourist essentials round out this attractive volume, making it the perfect introduction —and guide— to one of the world's most evocative cities.

FEATURES
•  Photographs by one of Kyoto's most renowned photographers
•  Locations of the most important Historic Preservations Districts
•  Detailed maps and suggested routes
•  Scenic and little-known walking paths
•  Completely revised and updated information

Product Description:
Although it focuses on Tokyo and Kyoto -- the two Japanese cities that most tourists want to visit -- Frommer's EasyGuide to Japan also examines the Japanese locations to which most tourists make day-trips or longer excursions from the two must-sees. Enjoying a far more favorable exchange rate than in recent years, the now-moderately-priced Japan is enjoying a major upswing in its incoming tourism, and our experienced author of many previous guidebooks to Japan has made it even easier to enjoy, easier to understand, easier to tour, in a concise "Easy Guide" designed to fit into pocket or purse.

Product Description:
Why should you choose this guide book instead of any other? Top 4 Reasons: - It's cheaper than other guide books - Fellow other travellers and I tried everything in the travelguide ourselves and I describe in detail to you how we've done it, so that you can travel to the sights on your own and can save money on expensive guided tours or means of transport - it's very light because you can access it from your phone or an e-reader - it will give you lots of inspiration and tells you about hidden gems you don't want to miss - it's the best DIY budget travel guide for Japan There are many great guide book options out there. Deciding on one can even be a bit overwhelming. When I travel, I usually rely on Lonely Planet, since in my opinion, they manage it better than anybody else to mention the most interesting places and the best things to see and do, plus you have it all compact in one book. However, there are two disadvantages: since so many people work on the other guide books, they are quite costly and if you carry them with you as a book, they are also pretty heavy and take a lot of space. Which I never have, when I travel. Somehow my suitcase or backpack always gets too full. Therefore, I always jot down some notes before I start my travels but I hardly ever carry a guide book with me, except maybe as an e-reader. The second thing I don’t like about the other guide books is that even though they mention all the good places or transport options, they don’t explain how to do it. For example, what is the easiest option to go on a hike near Tokyo and even have a spectacular view on Mt. Fuji? Or or how would the locals travel to this place and where would the locals eat? In Japan it's really best if you know exactly where you want to go because of the language barrier. "I love Japan" will help you overcome any of these difficulties. In “I love Japan” you find all my personal experiences of my trips to Japan. I loved every minute I spent in this versatile country. Stunning mountain views, bustling cities, calm and beautiful temples and unexpected sights at which you can only stare in awe. Not to mention the delicious Japanese food. I planned all my trips carefully with ideas out of all the good guide books I could find, so you don't have to spend this money anymore. Plus I used TripAdvisor and many helpful blogs. So, if you want to have a more personal experience than the usual tourist and have some actual explanations how to have the best possible experience in a place, this guide book is definitely right for you. More info about other countries you find on my blog: www.swissmissontour.com If you need a fantasy novel to kill the time on your flight to Japan, check out my novel 'Heart of Power - Awakening of the Siren'. As a thank you, if you buy "I love Japan" you will receive a free packing list and the highlights of my "I love Japan" travel guide. I love Japan ebook categories - Japan guide book - Japan guidebook - Japan travel guide - Japan travel guide 2018 - Japan tour book - Japan vacation - Japan Lonely Planet - Japan travel - Tokyo travel guide - Haneda airport - ebooks for kindle - Japan - best of Japan - budget travel guide - rail travel - Tokyo - Kyoto Travel guide Safe travels and eat a some gyozas for me!
