This handsome paperback is intended both for English readers keen to discover aspects of Japan's traditional Japanese clothing and performing arts and Japanese readers who want to rekindle their knowledge of their homeland. Over 160 pages this guide lists a vast assortment of objects, from the traditional garments and accessories of Japan (kimono designs, sandals & clogs, fans etc) to a plethora of information relating to the performing arts (Noh costumes & masks, theatre construction, instruments, 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.
