Foreword Clarion Review, 4 out of 5 Stars:
The relaxing, enjoyable coloring book Essence of Japan, A Coloring Journey is an excellent sampler that draws on a trip to Japan. With images that are both grand and impressive and those that are closer and detailed, the book strikes a delicate balance that extends to its ratios of people, places, and things. The book is suited both to experienced colorists and newcomers to the hobby.

A trip to Japan changes everything:
Having a Japanese heritage, I always wanted to visit the land of my ancestors. In 2016, my dream came true when I visited central Japan. I experienced profound beauty of Japanese designs, gardens, nature, ancient cities, wonderful people, delicious food, and incredible “Unesco World Heritage sites”. After returning from my trip, I had a strong desire to draw this magnificent country into coloring book style.
I want to help promote Japan’s tourism by showcasing central Japan unlike any other. Experience beauty, culture and traditions. Many people maybe interested in Japan, but unable to make the journey, some can plan a destinations trip they would like to see or others who would like to relive their vacation. In this unique Japanese coloring book, you can explore Japan without leaving the comfort of your home.
I traveled to Japan to experience the country of my heritage. I was so inspired by its beauty, culture, and people that I had to illustrate Japan Coloring Books called “Essence of Japan” into a coloring book.
