Dear Confucio

Welcome to our October 2015 JapanVisitor newsletter!

Dear All,

We wish you a very happy October wherever you may be. We are approaching the best part of the year in the minds of many people with the coming of the fall and the beautiful autumn leaves in Japan.

We thank you all for your interest in Japan and JapanVisitor and it really helps us if you could like us on Facebook or follow JapanVisitor on Twitter and Google+.

We also appreciate all our subscribers who book hotels on their travels using our sponsors and Agoda, the small commission we earn helps to keep the site and this newsletter running.

We are also changing the way we send this newsletter so as we move over to using our own server for sending the newsletter you will be sent an email asking you sign up again for the new newsletter. This is for both your security and privacy reasons.


Thank you to all our subscribers who entered our previous competitions. We are running a new competition this month based on giveaways of books on Japan kindly provided by Tuttle Publishing - the Asian Book specialists.

If you could let us know which of the prizes below you would prefer if you win, that would help us match the winner with a prize you actually might want.

Also if you could send us your home address and telephone number for delivery by courier please.

See the entry details below and please have a try! Gambatte!


Each month (or thereabouts!) we will be offering new prizes for our members all sent registered mail from Japan. This month we have a number of books on offer.

Books on offer include Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen, Clueless in Tokyo by Betty Reynolds, Essential Japanese: Speak Japanese With Confidence, Things Japanese: Everyday Objects of Exceptional Beauty & Significance by Nicholas Bornoff The Japanese Mind: Understanding Contemporary Japanese Culture by Roger J. Davies & Osamu Ikeno plus some surprise gifts from our Japan Shop

We will also send out a voucher code for 10 percent off all items on Goods from Japan to all contestants on request.

If you have a preference for a particular book please let us know in your answers, this really helps us to allocate prizes.

All you have to do is answer these five simple questions (follow the links to find the answers).
