"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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Anyone interested in knowing what it is like to become fully immersed in another culture--yet always as an outsider--will enjoy this thoughtful account immensely." --Library Journal
"Pungent with sounds, tastes, colors and village and family lore...Otowa gives us a book of celebration, radiance, and renewal." --Japan Times
"A wonderful book about an old Japanese house, a resourceful American woman, and how they come together to honor the past and forge a bright future. What Frances Mayes did for Tuscany, Rebecca Otowa just might have done for the Japanese countryside. Bravo!" --Leza Lowitz, author of Green Tea to Go: Stories from Tokyo
