"In A Japanese House" tells the true story of a foreign woman who has been, for nearly 30 years, the housewife, custodian, and chatelaine of a 350-year-old farmhouse in rural Japan. The book traces a circular path, from the basic physical details of life in the house and village, through relationships with family, neighbours, and the natural and supernatural entities with whom the author shares the house. The author then focuses on her inner life, touching on some of the pivotal memories of her time in Japan, the lessons in perception that Japan has taught her, and finally, and the ways in which she has been changed by living in Japan. The book contains approximately 40 original illustrations and 20 photographs.
