While this is a very helpful little book, I think it pretty disgraceful that only two of the hundred people are women, and they are both ancient novelists. I guess that tells you something about Japanese culture right there.

Who's Who of Japan: 100 Historical Personages is one of a series of pocket guidebooks aimed at English-speaking travelers to Japan. A little stiff, a little awkward, they nevertheless give a lot of useful information in a small package.
