Enter the world of the stylish Japanese house, where every object in sight is a work of art. Japan Style introduces 20 special residences. With more than 200 color photographs, this book showcases the stunning beauty of old homes, and reveals how they are cared for by their owners.

Traditional Japanese homes, with superbly crafted fine wood, great workmanship and seasonal interior arrangements, have an aesthetic of infinite simplicity. Unlike Japanese inns and historical buildings, the houses featured in this book are private property and are not open to public viewing. Japan Style offers a rare glimpse into the intimate world of the everyday Japanese and fascinating insight into the traditional architecture of Japan.

Japanese style has been referred to as the 'less is more' style meaning little provides a lot of class/sophistication. There was a lot more reading involved with this book than I though (still almost no reading). The books beauty is the use of a little text to provide concepts behind what I feel are STUNNING photographs in a variety of homes in Japan. I'm very happy I took the time to enjoy this book....
