Home to more than 35,000,000 people, it is the hub of modern Japanese business, politics and culture. Yet only a day trip away from the centre of the metropolis quiet mountains and valleys, holiday beaches and sleepy rural villages can be found. The 33 walks detailed in this book are organized around an ancient Buddhist pilgrimage route. Each temple tour is a gateway into Japans spiritual traditions and an experience of the more elusive, older Japan that may still be discovered on the doorstep of one of the worlds most modern and cosmopolitan cities.
