This is a good example of an informational book because it contains facts about Japan, the culture, and the traditions. The book also contains a glossary of terms in the back. The illustrations are photographs of the Japanese people in daily life and in other situations. The photographs show the reader examples of what the text is explaining.Media: Photographs
