This book gives an account of the visit of the author to Japan and includes not only much useful information concerning the country and its institutions, points of interest, roads, routes and cost of travel, constituting a guide to the land of cherry blossoms, but also chapters on interesting periods of Japanese history, including the Russo-Japanese war. Much of the story of the book is supposed to be related by the two traveling companions of the visitor to Japan, the judge and the major, but this feature does not add materially to the interest of an otherwise entertaining book. There are numerous half-tone illustrations, and an appendix giving details of trips and cost of travel to Hawaii, Japan, China and the Philippines.
