The cities of Kyoto and Nara are known throughout the world for their extraordinary beauty. In Kyoto and Nara: The Soul of Japan, their modern state of serenity is well illustrated with depth and distinction in the photographs of Toshitaka Morita. Commentary by Philip Sandoz provides essential background information about the two historic cities. Following the book's carefully laid-out design, the reader is taken from season to season and from the past to the present in a way that will remind onetime visitors of the peace and calm they experienced in Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, in tranquil gardens and elegant inns. Future visitors will find greater reason to finally take the trip they have dreamed of, to walk the worn paths past statues of smiling foxes, rows of red gateways, and roofs of tile shaped like cresting waves. The seasons, the centuries, and the social state of the country have brought numerous changes to these two former capital cities. Still, Kyoto and Nara possess enough proof of former days of glory that even a first-time visitor will recognize that they are indeed the soul of Japan. In this volume photographer Toshitaka Morita and writer Philip Sandoz have recorded that soul admirably.

An enchanting and fascinating insight into Japanese landscape, culture, history and future. Originally written in Japanese, this passionate, vividly personal book draws on the author's experiences in Japan over thirty years. Alex Kerr brings to life the ritualized world of Kabuki, retraces his initiation into Tokyo's boardrooms during the heady Bubble Years, and tells the story of the hidden valley that became his home. But the book is not just a love letter. Haunted throughout by nostalgia for the Japan of old, Kerr's book is part paean to that great country and culture, part epitaph in the face of contemporary Japan's environmental and cultural destruction. Winner of Japan's 1994 Shincho Gakugei Literature Prize. Alex Kerr is an American writer, antiques collector and Japanologist. Lost Japan is his most famous work. He was the first foreigner to be awarded the Shincho Gakugei Literature Prize for the best work of non-fiction published in Japan.
