Castles in Japan

Light edge wear to jacket. 188 pages with Notes, Glossary, Bibliography, and Index. 50 illustrations, mostly black & white photographs. From the publisher: "Behind the glossy facade of modern Japan there survive remnants--some of them surprisingly well preserved--of the country's feudal past, of warlords and fighting samurai, of shoguns and sequestered emperors, of princes and peasants. This book vividly presents the castles of Japan, more than 80 of them altogether, ranging geographically from Matsumae on the northern island of Hokkaido to Kagoshima in southern Kyushu. Aided by detailed maps and plans, the author treats each castle as an architectural entity and puts them all in their historical context. He also recounts fascinating legends and reveals little known facts about the buildings and the people who inhabited them.": 02264: 
Price: 15.00 USD
