Short Journeys: Japan
I first came to Japan as a tourist a month after the March 11th 2011 tsunami, and a year later was living in Iwate teaching English in a region greatly affected by the events of that day. With this book I try to include all the places I have visited in Japan in a useful book full of tips and anecdotes. Japan is a wonderful country full of culture, friendly people, mountains, beaches, amazing cities. It is a country that has seen devastation from nuclear bombs and wars, through to earthquakes and tsunamis and still has a smile. I include a special chapter about Iwate Prefecture and hope that people reading this book and heading to Japan will consider heading there as it moves forward from that day in 2011, seemingly in the past but still very much in the minds of those who live here. Japan is brimming with life and warmth and its own uniqueness. Take a read, and see what it's all about. Includes over 60 photos taken by the author.
