Japan from Anime to Zen
Quick Takes on Culture, Art, History, Food . . . and More
This friendly guide offers concise but detailed demystifications of more than 85 aspects of ancient and modern Japan.
It can be read in sequence, or just dipped into, depending on the moment’s need. Explanations go much deeper than a typical travel guide and cover 1,500 years of history and culture, everything from geisha to gangsters, haiku to karaoke, the sun goddess to the shogunate . . . and anime to Zen.
"Japan from Anime to Zen brings readers a wealth of interesting and relevant information covering a broad variety of topics with an impressive amount of detail. I learned a lot!"
—Abby Denson, Cool Japan Guide
"Neatly organized and easy to browse, with a good level of information and helpful details not found in other, similar books.”
—Gilles Poitras, author of Tokyo Stroll
