About Japan in 100 Words From Anime to Zen (Hardcover)

Japan in 100 Words: From Anime to Zen: Discover the Essential Elements of Japan was written by Ornella Civardi and Gavin Blair, with color illustrations by Ayano Otani.

As its title suggests, this book captures the essence of Japanese life and culture in 100 words. From well-known concepts like zen, kawaii and anime to their lesser-known counterparts waiting to be discovered by the West, Japan in 100 Words covers it all.

Readers will learn more about:

  • Chochin—decorative lanterns seen everywhere from shrines and temples to izakaya 
  • Fugu—the very carefully prepared delicacy of poisonous blowfish 
  • J-pop—the now widely popular musical genre 
  • Karoshi—literally translated as "overwork death" 
  • Omiai—the Japanese version of an arranged marriage 
  • And much more!

The beautiful full-color illustrations bring these ideas, places and objects to life—making it the perfect addition to any Japanophiles library or a fun and useful introductory guide for a first-time visitor to Japan.
