All about Japan: A Bilingual Handbook for Visitors - West Japan is a complete bilingual guide with the most important cities and places located in the west part of Japan. There are detailed explanations from different places of  Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Hiroshima or Okinawa among others. At the end of each chapter, there is a Q&A section with curious questions such as: Why are there so many deer in Nara? Why the basketball team from Hiroshima is famous? Which are the most important dishes from Okinawa's food? etc

In the pages on the left there are texts written in English and on the ones on the right, the same text written in Japanese. This bilingual reading can be very useful for those who have interest in Japan and also for high intermediate students (N3 or N2) who wish to practice reading comprehension without furigana and at the same time, learn new aspects of Japanese culture.
