Excerpt Wednesday – Japaneseness: A Guide to Values and Virtues

Michael Palmer - Wednesday, September 28, 2016

We’ve pulled this week’s excerpt from Japaneseness: A Guide to Values and Virtues by Yoji Yamakuse, a book that The Japan Times noted as “valuable for the way it lets us look at humanity through a specific cultural lens.” Indeed, the true beauty of Japaneseness lies in its ability to gracefully unfurl Japanese culture to reveal the country’s distinctive values, manners, and ethics.
