Dit is Japan

Yutaka Yazawa

Terra, 2019


This is Japan is the ultimate introduction to Japan. Author Yutaka Yazawa inspires with short stories about the best that his country has to offer – from design and food to philosophy and family life.
Tradition and innovation go hand in hand in the land of the rising sun. Modern architecture and trendy fashion in mega cities such as Tokyo and Yokohama exist alongside age-old ceremonies that glorify the natural and spiritual world. Yazawa tells in eight chapters about their background and meaning.
This handy book, illustrated with beautiful photos and drawings, takes you to the land of kimonos, cherry blossoms and kintsugi, of course, but also shows where pioneering manga, new whiskeys and revolutionary robots are produced. Read This is Japan and discover what the Japanese do: drink sake, go outside, be nice to your neighbors and find balance in your busy life. IN DUTCH!
