A photographic guide to the country of Japan, by award winning documentary photographer and filmmaker Julian Bound.With a population close to 130 million, Japan offers the uniqueness of a society living hand in hand with both ancient and ultramodern cultures.This combination of the traditional and the new can be experienced within two hours when, connected by the Shinkansen Bullet train, a visitor can take in the delights of Kyoto’s historical shrines and secluded gardens before arriving in Tokyo’s metropolis of neon light and huge television screens beaming down upon the city high above electrical stores and vast shopping malls. Yet, Japan’s capital also embraces the long-standing and the innovative, providing a cityscape like no other.With over 100 photographs in colour and black and white, Japan, Land of The Rising Sun’ provides an intimate portrait of Japan and its cultural heritage, landscapes, gardens shrines and people.
