Description
The essence of Japan in 100 fascinating words, from Ainu and Anime to Yuzen and Zen. Encompassing ineffable and quintessentially Japanese philosophies, concepts, and customs as well as objects, people and pop culture. Each profile explores the Japanese word and the culture related to it, with colourful illustrations to capture the spirit of the words. While bonsai, ramen and shiatsu might be familiar, this engaging guide dives deeper into Japanese life, with less well-known but important ideas, such as omotenashi (impeccable hospitality) and gaman (stoicism and strength).
