In 1966, Eon Productions decided to film the fifth James Bond adventure in Japan: You Only Live Twice, based on the novel by Ian Fleming which was published two years before. The film that resulted from these efforts came out in 1967 and was an unsurpassed visual spectacle. The exciting Tokyo neon signs, the beautiful countryside temples and the rural villages and volcanoes gave the film a very exotic background. Today, Japan is still a very attractive travel destination and this book will encourage you to follow the tracks of her majesty’s best known secret agent.
Go on an exciting journey from Tokyo to Kagoshima, revisiting all the filming locations used in You Only Live Twice. From Osato Chemicals HQ to Tiger Tanaka’s countryside house, from Blofeld’s volcano base to the remote shrine where Bond married Kissy. It's an action packed adventure for movie buffs, bond fans and film location hunters. Includes a bonus trip to Hashima (Gunkanjima
or Battleship Island) in Nagasaki Bay, which served as the model for Silva’s hideout in Skyfall.
Written by Martijn Mulder (author of "On the tracks of 007"), with an introduction by Oscar® winning sound editor Norman Wanstall, this guide contains 170 pages filled with info, behind the scenes photos, location photos and maps. It is the ultimate field guide dedicated to the 50th anniversary of You Only Live Twice.

"A great followup to "On The Tracks Of 007". The perfect companion for a trip to Japan in search of Bond locations. Such a trip is above my pay grade but, thankfully, this book isn't. Reading this book makes you feel like you're there looking for locations. Packed with rare photos from the film and new photos of the existing locations, this is a must for Bond fans and fans of YOLT especially. My only quibble, and it's a small one, is that I wish the book was a larger size to showcase the rare photos better. Of course, it's the perfect size for a travel guide so, there you go." - By Delmo Waters Jr. (Amazon.com)
