Sale price€24,90

Language, the cornerstone of every culture, is one of the most effective keys to understanding a people, their way of thinking, their contradictions and the society in which they live.

Japan, hidden as it is behind its complex rituals, may seem like an impenetrable mystery. To help the reader approach this world, the book takes inspiration from 100 Japanese words that are not commonly translated but used in their original form: each of them is explained by simple but enlightening texts and illustrated by a Japanese artist in a personal and captivating. Some entries contain short additional texts that explain secondary terms related to the main one.

The authors, thanks to their profound knowledge of the country, its history and the Japanese language, thus reveal the most indecipherable secrets of this magnificent culture, from the most traditional aspects to those linked to the contemporary. An index of all the Japanese terms that occur in the volume will help the reader to orient himself, in a system of cross references.
