Destination Reads: The Best Books to Transport You to Japan
There is nowhere quite like Japan. The juxtaposition of the ancient rituals and traditional customs of its countryside with the all-out sensory onslaught of its neon cityscapes leads to a creative tension embodied in much of the nation’s great literature. The list below delves deep into the Japanese psyche, as well as shining a light on faded historical eras and revelling in gaudy pulp horror and sci-fi anime. If that all feels a little overwhelming, don’t worry, because we have also included some crisp and lucid non-fiction to help you navigate your way through a frequently baffling cultural maze.
