ITB Book Award goes to the travel calendar ’Japan 2021 – Land of the Rising Sun’

Published on : Thursday, December 17, 2020

Every year, the annual ITB Book Awards recognise the most original publications, mainly in German, but also in German translation.

In the run-up to ITB Berlin NOW 2021 – which due to the pandemic will be an entirely virtual event – the large-format wall calendar ‘Japan 2021 – Land of the Rising Sun‘ (Weingarten/Athesia Kalenderverlag) was picked for the Travel Calendar Award. ”This magnificent calendar features unique picture-postcard views, with examples of impressive landscape photography and historical cultural attractions. They include natural attractions such as Japan’s Mount Fuji, along with the Churei-to pagoda in Fujiyoshida, photographed by Michele Falzone. Also featured are the famous Meoto-Iwa wedded rocks, photographed by Gavin Hellier. Joined together by a rope symbolising marriage, they are situated in the Pacific on the Shima Peninsula near the Ise-Shima National Park. The months of February and March as well as August to November evoke the magic of the former ancient imperial capital city, inspiring viewers to visit Kyoto and explore Japan’s cultural soul“, was how the judges commented their choice.

The aim of the ITB Book Awards is to focus attention beyond national borders on the broad spectrum of important travel and tourism publications. ITB Berlin is partnering with Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels. The ITB Book Awards do not confer prize money.
