Bornoff describes the best ways to tackle Tokyo and other must-see sites in Japan such as Mount Fuji, imperial Kyoto, historical Nagasaki, Hokkaido and its national parks, and dozens of other major and lesser-known places. In-depth features discuss the fascinating contrasts between Japan's modern, cutting-edge technological facade and its ancient core.
