To see some of the wonders of Japan all you have to do is stretch out this accordion-fold pop up book. On both sides of the fold out you'll find a variety of sights and a little information about each one.

You'll discover the Imperial Palace that dates back to 1868 when the country's emperor moved from Kyoto to Tokyo, and the magnificent Meiji Jingu Shrine surrounded by a forest of trees. Other scenes include the modern Rainbow Bridge, the Kamakura Buddha, Mount Fuji, Todaiji built in the eighth century, and the Itsukushima Shrine which appears to float on water during high tide.

This popular series of small books not only make a wonderful keepsake after a visit to the city or country featured but they are also an excellent teaching tool that make a geography lesson far more interesting.
