If you are looking for just a breif overview this book is perfect. We were in Japan for 9 days and more focused on learning about the culture and food than all the historic sites so we needed minimal details about historic sites. If you are more interested in the history then I would recommend a different guide book.
This book (2010 version) stands out as I believe it uses a writing style of presenting balanced practical information (hotel / restaurant recommendaion, train station guide, pririty on sites, etc.), with historical, cultural, and people oriented facts / background.
The other books I bought are: Lonely Planet Japan; Rough Guide Japan; Japan by Rail.
The specialized ones are: Old Kyoto by Durston; Exploring Kyoto by Clancy; Kyoto Seven Paths to the heart of the city also by Durston; and Autumn Colors of Kyoto.
I guess I am used to the idea of traveling combining with both sensual and intellectaul enjoyment, I prefer books with depths but also have practical guidance on what to do and what to eat in every stop, rathan than giving me just simple facts and Wikipedia type of summary descriptions.
I feel the editor and writer(s) used a beasutiful perspective to present you with her / his experience such that you can do it your own way or follow the same path.
I only wish Fommers publishes more frequent update of this books, I suggest every year with minor update and every three years for major updates, to give readers new information on the practical guide portion of the destinations.
