Located an hour south of Tokyo, Kamakura was the feudal capital of Japan from 1192 to 1333 and is home to over 85 Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. This is the iPhone/iPod Touch version of American photographer Andy Barker's book, the first photo book on Kamakura published by a non-Japanese. It contains 64 breathtaking, high-resolution photographs, including 17 new ones, grouped by seasons. English or Japanese text is automatically displayed depending on your device's language setting. A single-tap displays the captions, while a double-tap brings up the scrollable index bar, allowing you to move quickly to any page in the book. You can also pinch to zoom in to see fine details. If you love traditional Japanese culture, exquisite gardens, and colorful festivals, this is the app you've been waiting for.
