On The Track Of 007: Guide To Japan is a new book from Dutch publisher DMD Digital written by long-time FSWL friend and supporter Martijn Mulder. Martijn recently organized an amazing and truly unforgettable two-week tour of Japan for a group of 40 participants including members of the From Sweden with Love team.

"The ONLY book you need to find and visit the real-life film locations featured in one of the most entertaining James Bond films to date. And one location from the most popular Bond film in recent years. Martijn has yet again done a sterling job."
Anders Frejdh

Go on an exciting adventure to exotic Japan and revisit the filming locations of the fifth James Bond film You Only Live Twice (1967).

On The Track Of 007 Guide to Japan
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.

On The Track Of 007 Guide to Japan
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.

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 (2012).
