An Illustrated History of JapanBook - 2005
From prehistoric times through the important milestones up to the modern day, this is a wonderful introduction to Japanese history and culture - how Japan was originally part of the Asian continent, its transformation from the ice age and small villages to a Japanese empire and the world of samurais. Fascinating features of each era are highlighted, such as the giant tombs of the Kofun period.
