John Lander

Author John Landerabout this book: John Lander explores the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Japan to view the country's architecture, history, customs and festivals. Lander traveled to almost all the country's UNESCO sites: from well-known places like Mount Fuji to hidden temple gardens and off-the-beaten-path offshore islands. The book also includes intangible world heritage cultural items, providing portraits of Japanese cuisine, performing arts and other crafts. With a lyrical preface by Pico Iyer, World Heritage Japan is Lander's personal photographic tribute to an ancient culture and a beautiful country - a stunning visual journey across Japan. John Lander is a photographer and longtime resident of Japan who has captured stunning images of Japan's many UNESCO World Heritage sites. John is specialized in Japanese gardens but with an interest in pilgrimages, hot springs, Japanese cuisine and festivals as well.When he is not out-and-about photographing sites for his books, magazines and newspapers on assignment, he can be found at rest in his traditional Japanese style home near Kamakura.
