Reviews
"What distinguishes this title from many others purporting to be the last word on the subject is its highly detailed content, reflecting a rare cultural depth and appreciation of subject." --Stephen Mansfield, The Japan Times
"The book that out-temples all the rest; the essence of Kyoto" --Kansai Time Out
"More than 100 color photos and 40 full-color guide maps and diagrams of individual sites make this an indispensable guide. Each walk comes with a huge amount of detail and background information. The beauty of the photos makes this almost coffee-table book like in its quality. Yet, it is small enough to carry around." --Japan Visitor blog
