From Martijn Mulder, the author of the ultimate Bond location guide On the Tracks of 007, now comes a special Japan film guide, featuring the filming locations of the fifth James Bond film You Only Live Twice (1967), which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

In 1966, Eon Productions decided to film the fifth James Bond adventure in Japan: You Only Live Twice, based on the novel by Ian Fleming which was published two years before. The film that resulted from these efforts came out in 1967 and was an unsurpassed visual spectacle. The exciting Tokyo neon signs, the beautiful countryside temples and the rural villages and volcanoes gave the film a very exotic background. Today, Japan is still a very attractive travel destination and this book will encourage you to follow the tracks of her majesty’s best known secret agent.

With an introduction by Oscar winning (for Goldfinger) sound editor Norman Wanstall, On The Tracks of 007: Guide to Japan contains 170 pages with info, behind the scenes photos, location photos and maps.

Locations include Tokyo, Kagoshima, Osato Chemicals HQ, Tiger Tanaka’s countryside house, Blofeld’s volcano base, the remote shrine where Bond married Kissy... an action packed adventure for movie buffs, bond fans and film location hunters. Includes a bonus trip to Hashima (Gunkanjima or Battleship Island) in Nagasaki Bay, which served as the model for Silva’s hideout in SkyFall (2012).

Available online at for $24.95 (USA), or on for £19.95 (UK). For other countries, visit or order the book at any international bookstore around the globe.

About the author:
Martijn Mulder ('71) is a freelance writer who lives in the Netherlands. His website about the 007 filming locations is one of the longest running James Bond related sites, being online since 1995. Together with Dirk Kloosterboer, Mulder wrote the travel guide On the tracks of 007, which was published in 2008. He frequently organises trips and guided tours to the filming locations around the world.

About On the tracks of 007
Originally a long list of filming locations on a one-page website called The James Bond Locations Page in 1995, On the tracks of 007 steadily attracted a growing audience and even started a hobby we now globally know as ‘location hunting’. The website also published its info on CDROMs (from 2001 to 2006) and in 2008 in print.
