DK Eyewitness Japan - DK Eyewitness

Konnichiwa from one of the most fascinating countries on earth.

Whether you want to see cherry blossoms in Kyoto, speed through the countryside aboard a shinkansen, or shop til you drop in futuristic Shibuya, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all Japan has to offer.

Japan is a land of contrast - think tranquil zen gardens and peaceful pagodas, neon-lit cities and robot restaurants. Cities might be the first things that spring to mind when you think of Japan, but the countryside is just as epic. There's the iconic Mount Fuji, bubbling hot springs, unspoiled beaches and adrenaline-packed ski resorts. And if that wasn't enough to entice you to visit, there's the food - unctuous noodles, delicate sushi and warming hotpots.

Our updated guide brings Japan to life, transporting you there like no other travel guide does with expert-led insights, trusted travel advice, detailed breakdowns of all the must-see sights, photographs on practically every page, and our hand-drawn illustrations which place you inside the country's iconic buildings and neighbourhoods. We've also worked hard to make sure our information is as up-to-date as possible following the COVID-19 outbreak.

You'll discover:

our pick of Japan's must-sees, top experiences and hidden gems
the best spots to eat, drink, shop and stay
detailed maps and walks which make navigating the country easy
easy-to-follow itineraries
expert advice: get ready, get around and stay safe
colour-coded chapters to every part of Japan, from Tokyo to Kyoto City, Hokkaido to Okinawa
our new lightweight format, so you can take it with you wherever you go
