We recently returned from a 2 week trip to Japan which included the following:
The Japan Alps (Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine route)
Kurobe Gorge (Unazuki Onsen)
Noto Peninsula (Wajima, So-ji Temple, Chirihama Beach)
We were disappointed in the DK Eyewitness Guide to Japan. Information was either often simply missing or very brief and unhelpful.
We were pleased with the Fodor's Guide to Japan, Michelin Green Guide to Japan and the Lonely Planet Guide to Kyoto.
I tossed the DK Eyewitness Guide in the trash in Kyoto.
