Traditional Japanese architecture emphasises economy of design and an unsurpassed sensitivity to the natural environment. And a traditional Japanese home with its freshly woven tatami mats, sliding shoji screens, and exposed wooden beams is the height of this art form.

Japanese Living reveals a unique aesthetic through stunning photographs and insightful descriptions. Discover the simple proportions based on the square of the tatami mat; the fluid floor plan created by movable screens; the rich textures from the combination of indigenous woods, straw, and paper; and the use of nature itself to enhance the home.

Whether at a traditional inn, an imperial villa, or a garden pavilion, this beautifully photographed, gift book captures the essence of Japanese architectural elegance.
