Summary Rudy Maxa travels around the world, experiencing a variety of cultures, customs and cuisines.
"... Exciting, edgy, and full of life, Tokyo is shopping madness by day and a carnival at night. Join the throngs at one of the world's most exciting street intersections to witness its blazing neon and JumboTron shows. Greet the new day at the Tsukiji fish market, where a staggering 2,000 tons of seafood pass through each day. Get caught up in cherry blossom mania, visit distant neighborhoods via the subway, and wander the streets in search of new restaurants, a Tokyo obsession! Kyoto. Rudy presents the concept of wabi-sabi, the uniquely Japanese art of finding beauty in everyday life. And there is much to be found in Kyoto, from a 15th-century Zen garden to the Philosopher's Walk, the most popular place to take in spring flowers. Here, just steps from modern department stores, are quiet backstreets with little shrines and wooden houses. In the craft capital of Japan, witness the weaving of kimonos. Rudy also visits Kiyomizu-dera Temple, one of the most revered in Kyoto"--Container label back.
