Reviews - What do customers think about Things Japanese?

Great book!  Jan 13, 2008
Love the photos and the author's explanation of Things Japanese. I inherited many things from my mother and didn't know the history of them, until I read this book. Lovely coffee table book that provides beautiful photos, short-sweet, but detailed history & uses of everyday things I associate with Japan--tea ceremony items, shoji screens, kimonos & dolls. It also documents unusal items most Westerners don't know about--wooden chests, masks and entrance curtains.

You won't regret purchasing this beautiful book.
