Dear reader!

Welcome to this website, where we present our book “Saigoku – On the Road in Japan's Western Lands”. The Western Lands can be seen as a historical and cultural heart of Japan. Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, and Kobe are situated nearby. It is the area we called home for a few years, also thanks to its charming people. We hope you enjoy reading about the Western Lands. May be one day you are going to travel yourself in Saigoku.

Kind regards,
August Wierling & Jana Schwanitz
