The Bible or tranquilizer(?) for the guides. The book explains the
sightseeing spots and culture of Japan. A long-run (29th edition)
and one of the best selling books among the guides. It is smooth-touch
paper covered and very handy on actual guiding. For the examinees,
it tells you the general information about Japan and the technical
terms for the guides. You can also use the book for the preparation
of the interview test.
|"KANKO NIHON CHIRI"
(Japanese Geography in Tourism)
This is one of the musts to pass the third test (the paper test
in Japanese). One effective way of study with this book is to check
all the major cities, mountain ranges, rivers, plains, national
parks on the book with the Atlas of Japan and then fill them out
in a blank map by yourself. We suggest that you read the book as
many times as possible until you have memorized it. You should also
prepare so that you can write all the names in KANJI(Chinese character),too.
|"NIHON BUNKA GAIKO SHOSHI"
(Brief History of Japanese Culture and Diplomatic Intercourse)
This is another must for the third test that many passers of the
examination have read. It is also so compact that you should read
it thoroughly by referring the chronology attached at the back.
The book gives you the general flow of Japanese history and will
help you when you read more detailed history books of Japan.
