Let’s explore Japan is a brilliant a book by Speedy Publishing. It features some high quality, fantastic photos of notable temples and perhaps, not so well known attractions in Japan. I was blown away by these photos and even though, I spent three months in Japan (two in Niigata, one in Tokyo), it gave me a hankering to revisit again.
The best thing about this book is that it enables a conversation starter for young children and adults alike. There are photos from the aptly named Golden Pavilion, which has the first two stories covered in actual gold. Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan, Another photo shows the cherry blossom tree, next to Mount Fuji. The Tokyo Imperial Palace where the Emperor resides. Todai-ji is one of the seven great temples of Japan famous for the Kamakura , Buddha. I remember seeing a documentary about the snow monkeys which as far as I know only exist in Japan. The Tokyo Tower has a strong resemblance to the Eiffel Tower.
I see this book as an educational tool for students and children. Hopefully, it will energize students to research these attractions and maybe one day go to Japan.
This book was given to me at a discount for my unbiased and honest.
