The Monocle Book of Japan

€59.50

Japan may be one of the world’s biggest economies, a global leader in everything from architecture to food and a country whose brands have flourished around the world, but it remains a bit of a mystery. Somehow it is simultaneously familiar and hard to fathom – or it has been, until now.

This book is the culmination of years of reporting across the country by Monocle and it delivers a unique insight into the people, places and products that define Japan. Ever since it launched in 2007, Monocle has had a rich and deep connection with Japan. Over the past decade, the magazine has built up a unique understanding and passion for the nation. It has discussed everything from a live journey on the Emperor's jet and the tastiest places to eat in Kagoshima to the fashion designers crafting new levels of excellence and the businesses with remarkable stories untold outside Japan. Now, the Monocle team celebrates the endlessly fascinating and culturally rich country of Japan, covering everything from design, architecture, and culture to food, fashion, and current affairs. Complete with striking photography and captivating essays, this volume showcases some of Japan’s most intriguing splendors.

Whether you’re planning a visit or simply curious, The Monocle Book of Japan will unpack the nation for you. It’ll take you from snowy Hokkaido in the north to the tropical southern islands of Okinawa and, along the way, deep-dive into the worlds of culture, design, retail and more. It’s Japan revealed as never before.
