Publisher Description

Once Japan was a place of primeval forest and pristine mountains, but this ancient world is now disappearing. Alex Kerr's evocative, prize-winning Lost Japan ranges over Kabuki theatre, calligraphy, art, landscape, financial bubbles and his own childhood in Yokohama to explore a vanishing culture. 'Alex Kerr's book carries a powerful message applicable to all cultures. He is on a life-long quest for beauty.' Issey Miyake 'This deeply personal witness to Japan's wilful loss of its traditional culture is at the same time an immensely valuable evaluation of just what that culture was.' Donald Richie, author of The Japanese Film 'Alex Kerr loves Japan as much as anyone, but he knows more about it than most.' Stephen Hesse, Japan Times
