The greatest feature of this series is that each prefecture is taken up in its entirety, and its topography, geology, history, culture, industry, etc. are introduced while deciphering the map. In addition to being introduced in local newspapers in the areas where it was published, it also advanced to the top of the rankings of each bookstore, and was often out of stock on Amazon and Rakuten Books, creating a secret boom. This publication will be the second release of the second example following Tokyo.
