herry=i. 7 ossomn Time 2 OU'VE always wanted to see Japan, but you thought it too distant, too expensive ... Because you didn't know the Japan Tourist Bureau and its work in this country in connection with the tourist agents and transportation companies. It plans trips for millionaires ... yes, but it gives just as much attention to the teacher, the student, the inquiring mind tied to a slim purse. For instance, one of the itineraries in its booklet "Specimen Tours" covers a good part of Japan in as little as ten days. First, Yokohama, its street life, its bazaars by motor car . . . Then, Tokyo- everything from Asakusa Park to the Imperial Palace ... Nikko, where the Sacred Bridge flares like blood against the Cryptomerias-Lake Chuzenji, lovely Miyanoshita and a marvelous 00o-mile motor trip to the foot of Mt. Fuji. Then to Kyoto of the geishas and the fans for two full days-the old Imperial Palace, the temples, the Hozu Rapids ... On to Nara, loveliest in the world-the Deer Park, the Great Buddha, the shrines in the hills ... Last of all, Kobe-Theatre Street, Motomachi for shopping and the Nunobiki Falls while your jinrikisha waits. Ten days that change your whole viewpoint on beauty, culture and world affairs . . . at surprisingly low cost. When do you sail? The wonderlandsof Japan,Korea, Manchuriaand China are reached from the United States and Canada by the Nippon Tusen Kaisha, Osaka Shosen Kaisha, the American Mail Line, Canadian Pacific and the Dollar Steamship Line. Full information will be furnished by any of these Lines, any tourist agency, or by the Japan Tourist Bureau. Write for "Specimen Tours" another booklets.
