In love with all things Japan or looking to absorb a little Japanese wisdom into your daily life? From the philosophies of ikigai and wabi sabi to kitsch karaoke nights and futuristic robot restaurants; traditional tea ceremonies and tranquil onsen dwellings to cosplay culture and J-Pop megastars; Japan is full of intriguing contradictions. Though renowned for its ultramodern capital Tokyo – a sprawling neon-lit metropolis straight from the pages of a science fiction novel – Japan is still deeply rooted in ancient tradition. And while the country runs with clockwork precision, the cultural life of the inhabitants is transformed with the changing of the seasons, a testament to the enduring power of nature’s rhythms. With each page alive with facts, history and inspiration, Be More Japan unlocks the secrets behind modern Japanese living – whether you’re eating sushi in London or enjoying the cherry blossoms in San Francisco. And if you’re dreaming of a future trip to Japan this book will get you closer to your destination before you’ve even departed.
