About the Author
Long before she could read, Beth Reiber
spent hours poring over her grandparents′ latest National Geographic magazines. After living several years in Germany, first as a university student and then as a freelance travel writer writing for major U.S. newspapers, and in Tokyo as editor of Far East Traveler, she authored several Frommer′s guides, including Frommer′s Japan and Frommer′s Hong Kong. She also contributes to Frommer′s USA and Frommer′s China. Online, she writes a blog for www.japantravelinfo.com. In 2009 she was appointed a YOKOSO! Japan Ambassador by Japan′s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism for her many years writing about Japan, the only recipient residing in the United States to receive the honorary award. When not on the road, she resides in an 1890 Victorian home in Lawrence, Kansas, with her two sons, a dog, and a cat.
