'Japan From The Inside' is a window into a land of superlatives.

Experience the world's biggest city, its busiest train station, a nation's recovery from the first atomic bomb, or the planet's longest life expectancies in this country steeped in tradition yet eye-poppingly modern at the same time.

This book unmasks Tokyo, and visits many other of Japan's cities and regions - from the frozen North to the subtropical South. It delves into some of the customs, food and heritage of Japanese culture, and captures some of the 127 million people that call it their home.

Author Dominic Pates spent five years living and working in Japan, documenting it as he explored and travelled around the country. This book is the result.

Thank you for your very generous comments.
Yours: a closer and much more varied look at modern Japan much more interesting than just seeing the ancient and beautiful temples and gardens. Great job!

Arigatou gozaimasu!
You've got my vote, too! Great pictures--I especially love the shot of the torii on Miyajima; that island is one of my favorite places here!
Congrats on a wonderful book, and good luck!
