Reviews - What do customers think about Things Japanese: Being Notes on Various Subjects Connected with Japan (Stone Bridge Classics)?

Greatest book ever about Japan  Jul 13, 2007
This book was written a hundred years ago, it therefore describes a Japan that often doesn't exist anymore, but this makes it more interesting. It is a great resource about things, that were lost. The single articles are full of information, always interesting and always have a personal note. It has an article about "Cats" but also about "Treaties with foreign powers", about "The status of women" but also about "Fashionable Crazes". Some things are slanted and reflect the spirit of the time, like when he talks of "Japanese People" but even then it is interesting, just seeing how our understanding has changed.

You can read it from "A to Z" or you can read single articles, whichever way, the book is going to be intersting and informative and as an added bonus you get a good dose of British humor. This is one of my favourite books about Japan and I have a lot.
