While I can find guides regarding places to visit in Japan, they all seem to promote the same places Tokyo shopping, inner city shrines, etc. Is there a website or book regarding places in Japan that promote the lesser known parts of Japan?

    The least known places have no guide... as soon as a guide is written, they're no longer least-known.

    Even some places that are listed in Lonely Planet aren't heavily visited. I went to the Ikebukuro Earthquake Museum, which was listed there, and the staff were surprised at someone who was obviously a foreign tourist visiting the museum. I explained that my Mum studied geology, and that I'm a scientist, and that explained it for them. Aug 23 '12 at 9:29
