Fleming Bond and Connery in Japan
Ian Fleming, James Bond and Sean Connery in Japan? Indeed they were. Read all about it in the new free-to-load book Fleming, Bond, and Connery in Japan: The Japanese Story of You Only Live Twice written by FSWL reader Graham Thomas.

Fleming made two trips. His first took place because he was writing a series of articles about the world’s most thrilling cities. A few years later he returned to research Japan’s places and culture for his Bond novel. You Only Live Twice (1964), which for many of its pages is a diary of Bond’s travels from Tokyo to Kyushu.

When this was turned into a film, Connery and the film crew arrived in Japan to shoot on location.

This book is the story of those trips.
