Publisher Description

Another Kyoto is a matchless guide to a great city, It is the fruit of Alex Kerr's half-century of living in Japan and of lore gleaned from people he's met along the way- artists, Zen monks and Shinto priests, Japanese literati, and expat personalities from days past, such as legendary art dealer David Kidd. Kerr turns what we thought we knew about Kyoto inside-out, revealing the inner ideas behind simple things like walls, floors, and sliding doors.

After this book, one can never walk through a Zen gate in the same way again.

Author Biography

Review

By exposing the convenient demarcations which define Kyoto, Alex Kerr and Kathy Sokol have deconstructed Kyoto cliches and in the process have produced a surprising and refreshing addition to Kyoto lore.
... Kerr and Sokol have performed a minor miracle by presenting that which is present in Kyoto as that which we have yet to see. I know that I will never pass a wall, or tread a floor, or sit on tatami the same way again. ... Another Kyoto is a kind of rapturous rupture which explodes the field of cultural, social, and poetic possibilities. Kyoto Journal
