This resource contains the full body text of Japan: An Illustrated Encyclopedia (Kodansha, 1993), which was compiled under the general editorship of the late Dr. Edwin O. Reischauer, and enjoys a solid reputation for its accurate and elegant English, written by first-class Japanologists chiefly from prestigious Harvard University. In addition to functioning as an ordinary encyclopedia, it can be a great help for explaining Japan or matters relating to Japan in English, or when you wish to express delicate nuances of the Japanese language in English.
