This handsome paperback is intended both for English readers keen to discover Japan's traditional architecture and everyday things and Japanese readers who want to rekindle their knowledge of their homeland. Over 144 pages this guide lists a vast assortment of objects, from the buildings and features of traditional architecture (tatami mats, ornamental gardens, tea huts, etc) to a plethora of everyday objects (lanterns, folding screens, washi scrolls, etc).
Each object is wonderfully illustrated (by Sueyoshi Eiko) and there is accompanying descriptive text in both English and Japanese.
Beautifully printed, softback with flaps and comes with, of course, an obi strip.
Size: 132 x 210mm
