Traditional Japanese design imbues objects with a sense of history and artistry that easily reaches across cultural boundaries.

  • Beautifully crafted samurai swords
  • Elegant wooden tansu chests
  • Elaborate tea ceremony implements
  • Exquisitely carved netsuke toggles
  • Fabulous silk-and-gold embroidered kimonos
Each item is described in loving detail alongside lovely full-color photographs that highlight the great artistry and craftsmanship in everyday items used by real people in traditional Japan. Things Japanese is the perfect book for Japanese antique collectors or anyone interested in Japanese art and the culture and history of Japan.
