Everyday Life in Traditional Japan
In this remarkable book, the author paints a vivid portrait of Tokugawa Japan when, under control of the shogun, the daily life of different classes consolidated the traditions that shaped modern Japan. Authentic samurai, farmers, craftsmen, merchants, courtiers, priests, actors, and outcasts come to life in this magnificently illustrated portrait of a colorful society.

An excellent cultural overview of Tokugawa-era Japan. Very basic and somewhat spotty in places, but if you need a book to START with, this is the one. Nice illustrations as well, particularly if you ever wanted to know how to plant rice. Read full review
