Read full description of the books In the Land of the Kami: A Journey Into the Hearts of Japan:The stories, or essays, or perhaps poems in disguise, collected here are somewhat whimsical. They emerged from simple questions: What is Zen? Who was Confucius? What was it like to be a kid in Japan 10,000 years ago, or 1000, or 500? How did death come to seem, as it did for many centuries, so much more important to the Japanese than life? It is the author's proud boast that, though the questions are treated in some depth, not a single definitive answer emerges.
Read information about the authora work in progress
I was born and grew up. I drifted to Japan. I took root. Why here and not somewhere else? Happenstance. Do I write only about Japan? No. Mostly? Yes. Why? It's the air I breathe. I'm often asked if I like Japan. Answer: I like the house I live in, and the house I live in is in Japan. Books aside (but are books ever really "aside"? never) I write mostly for the Japan Times, where I have two Sunday columns going: (1) Big in Japan, on current issues; (2) The Living Past – tales and essays on Japanese history.
