"The amount of tips in this book must have taken the author/photographer years to gather and his enthusiasm for everything Japanese rolls [right] off the colorful pages." --The Travel Tester
"The Little Book of Kyoto is filled with gorgeous photographs and loaded with information about every area of the city in the form of short essays...Kyoto is definitely a place I would love to return to, and now I can return, if even for a short time by picking up this book and flipping through the pages." --Castle View Academy blog
