The changing patterns of Japanese tourism and the views of the Japanese tourist since the Meiji Restoration, in 1868, are given an in-depth historical, geographical, economic and social analysis in this book. As well as providing a case study for the purpose of investigating the changing face of global tourism from the 19th to the 21st Century, this account of Japanese tourism explores both domestic social relations and international geographical, political and economic relations, especially in the northeast Asian context. Socio-cultural and geographical analysis form the research framework for the book, in three ways: first, there is an emphasis on scale as tourism phenomena and their implications are discussed both in a global context and at the national, regional and local levels- second, the discussion is informed by primary data sources such as censuses and surveys- and third, the incorporation of fieldwork and case studies adds concreteness to the overall picture of Japanese tourism. This book is a significant addition to an area of study currently under-represented in the literature.

    I would be very cautious when online businesses ask for drivers license. Something just doesn't feel right. Did you ask them why they'd need that piece of information? I'd be very skeptical if their answer is "to verify that you are the holder of the credit card".

    Excellent list, Amy. Is there any correlation between mental strength and personality type? I'm curious whether different personality types have better success with mental strength or improving their mental strength. Thanks.
