この本はとてもすまらないです。The book describes numbers of things, such as average height, how many people live in Japan, how big Japan is, etc. There is no “story” rather it is like an informational pamphlet.
I would not recommend this book to read for fun. However, If you want to learn some Japanese statistics it would be a good choice. Also if you wanted to read it out loud to practice counting.
I wanted to write this review because I wanted to caution students a bit. It looks like a picture book at first, but it actually includes very difficult poetry and kanji without kana in the last half. I only recommend this for advanced Japanese students. Even for me, (4th year) it was difficult. However, the photographs are really beautiful and the first half is very easy.
