I enjoyed Patrick's explanation of the various travels in Japan, using many rare, valuable photos that even Japanese people have never seen before. Tourists might be interested in the Shikoku pilgrimage route and the Kanto pilgrimage route in the future as well.
I think I was expecting more focus on the travels of medieval pilgrims and daimyo lords rather than this very general overview of travel (in the most general terms) over the ages. Mr. Lovell is clearly very knowledgeable, but it was a bit dry. I wanted to hear extracts from the travel diaries to bring the travels alive... There were also a great deal of Japanese terms - tricky for a non-Japanese speaker.
