Abstract The article is a review of the book 'Socio-Economic Geography of Japan' edited by I.S. Tikhotskaya and published in 2016. It is noted that this book shows the changing socio-economic geography of Japan not in isolation from the rest of the world, it reflects the position, role and characteristics of a wide set of Japanese studies disciplines in a global context. The book's structure can be reduced to four sections: geographical habitat, socio-demographic problems, economic geography and political and regional issues. Each section provides a vast array of factual material. The reviuewer recommends for future work describing the Japanese geopolitical history which can give an idea of geographical expanding (or declining) of the Japanese Empire borders and causes and consequences of these changes.
