I saw these books. And so of course I took a photo.
In America, we have books with Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin on the cover. In Japan, they have famous Japanese people, of course! I am woefully ignorant about Japanese history, so I had to research these two fellows.
On left: Shototoku Taishi–He was born in 574 A.D. He was a prince who spread Buddhism in Japan. (Prior to this period, it was met with resistance in Japan.)
On right: Miyamoto no Yoritomo–He was born in 1147 A.D. He was Japan’s first Shogun.
Doesn’t this look cool? I didn’t buy it though. It comes in different parts and you piece it together, so a little low quality. Plus, I must refrain from buying every single cute map I see!
