As a traveller, you will be amazed by the charming courtesy with which you are welcomed and also the care and refinement of Japanese food culture. It is a country where the majority of the population lives in the big cities, but Japan also stands for beautiful unspoilt landscapes and thousands of islands in the Pacific Ring of Fire. Marc Popelier’s lifelong passion for Japan crystallised in the pages of this photo book. Sights and scenes of Japan is a perfect introduction to Japan and will definitely convince anyone who was still hesitating about a trip to this fascinating country.
This book tells the story of a human adventure, that of the photographer Julius Mwelu, a talented and generous Kenyan, who was born in the valley of Mathare and has survived there. This part of Nairobi is one of the immense slums that make the Kenyan capital a permanent social scandal.
