Reviews

"Japan Traveler's Companion by Rob Goss guides readers through the country's historical sights, cultural attractions, culinary traditions, and pop-culture phenomena." --Publishers Weekly
"I've never seen a book that made me want to explore a place more...and offered so many intriguing choices with in-depth profiles and photos. Highly, highly recommended." --Wandering Educators blog
"Whether you're planning a trip to Japan or are just obsessed with the country like I am, this book will be a feast for your senses. With bright colored photographs that seem to jump off the pages and insider tips, you will get to see the beauty of Japan in all her facets. While the book definitely covers the main tourist attractions, the writer doesn't shy away from also showing you the lesser known parts of Japan. This book is both practical and inspirational." --The Travel Tester blog
"As a resource and inspirational guide, this book is of course great in your bookshelf or on your coffee table. There is also plenty of information about the rules in and around the onsen, so if you're interested in learning more about Japanese culture, then this book is also perfect for you!" --The Travel Tester blog
"A fascinating and informative browse for the armchair traveler, Japan Traveler's Companion is unreservedly recommended for personal, community, and academic library World Travel instructional reference and guide book collections." --Midwest Book Review
"Each section begins with an intriguing, two-page photograph, then follows that with a one-page map of the sights which are to be mentioned and a one-page overview of what is to come in the chapter. This would make a beautiful coffee table book, but it could also be used to persuade even the most jaded traveler to take a trip to Japan." --Japan Visitor
"Both tourists and armchair travelers will enjoy this heavily illustrated volume containing details about and beautiful pictures of attractions throughout the country." --Library Journal
