Modern Japanese culture by Leith Morton Download PDF EPUB FB2

From the title I was hoping for a book that would provide insight into Japanese culture and lifestyle. But this book is in fact a heavy duty textbook on Japanese literature. The cover is one of the most lovely I've ever seen, but unfortunately the contents weren't for by: 4.

This is the book on modern Japanese culture I have been looking for. It is more academic than some of the popular titles (a relief to me because I like to know why, rather than just what), but not so heavy as the really chunky tomes (Yes Cambridge History of Japan, I am talking about you).4/5.

Modern Japanese culture is inherently tied to the historical and political aspects of the broader picture, so it was disappointing to see that a discussion of the culture's progression through the modern time was left out. Instead "modern" Modern Japanese culture book treated as fixed and by:   The four volumes in this Routledge Major Work bring together the most useful new-wave essays written from the s onwards, together with the Modern Japanese culture book key and ‘classic’ articles written in earlier decades in order to build up a more nuanced portrait of modern Japanese culture and society.

Zen and Japanese Culture (Mythos: The Princeton/Bollingen Series in World Mythology), by Daisetz T. Suzuki: There can be no authentic discussion of Japanese culture without a basic understanding of its primary DNA component, Zen the other books on this list, Zen and Japanese Culture zooms in on the direct relationship between old-world Zen Buddhism and modern Japanese culture.

Over the past two decades, the popularity of Japanese food in the West has increased immeasurably—a major contribution to the evolution of Western eating habits. But Japanese cuisine itself has changed significantly since pre-modern times, and the food we eat at trendy Japanese restaurants, from tempura to sashimi, is vastly different from earlier Japanese fare/5(2).

The culture of Japan has changed greatly over the millennia, from the country's prehistoric Jōmon Period, to its contemporary modern culture, which absorbs influences from Asia, Europe, and North America.

Japan's indigenous culture originates primarily from the Yayoi people who settled in Japan between BCE to CE. Yayoi culture quickly spread to the main island of Honshū, mixing.

Japanese society custom culture are Japanese society and culture se popular culture is coming to have a global influence and a deep influence on the psyches of many people around the se architecture has as long of a history as any other aspect of Japanese culture. The Cambridge Companion to Modern Japanese Culture traces the cultural transformation that took place over the course of the twentieth century, and paints a picture of a nation rich in cultural diversity.

That covers a lot of ground - during that time Japan went from a multicultural tribal society (yayoi/jomon) to being gove. Japanese Culture. Japan has a fascinating and multifaceted culture; on the one hand it is steeped in the deepest of traditions dating back thousands of years; on the other it is a society in a continual state of rapid flux, with continually shifting fads and fashions and technological development that constantly pushes back the boundaries of the possible.

Davies and Ikeno edited a book about modern Japanese culture, but it felt like it was a half-inch deep and a mile wide. I suppose that's inevitable given how they're trying to discuss an entire culture - but what's annoying is that they really don't discuss the entire culture.

Instead, the book focuses on individualized aspects of Japanese culture/5. Japanese popular culture has become one of the most globalized aspects of Japanese society and culture today. And, in the United States, there are many college-age students for whom the Battleship Yamato is a memory of a story much like folk tale might have been to previous generations of people.

Combatting the perception that Japanese cooking is difficult, chef Rika Yukimasa has written her first cookbook aimed at a U.S.

audience, “Rika’s Modern Japanese Home Cooking: Simplifying. Precarity in Japanese Popular Culture and Literature, examines the new literary trend created by a new generation of writers in Japan where the predicaments of the modern working life are vividly portrayed throughout the vacillating precarious socio-economic conditions in contemporary urban Japanese society.

The book closely examines how. In Japan, suicide (自殺, jisatsu) is considered a major social issue. Inthe country had the seventh highest suicide rate in the OECD, at perpersons.

During the Asian financial crisis, rates of suicide spiked heavily, increasing by % in alone and remaining relatively high thereafter.

Japanese culture is 'coded', in some wonderfully peculiar way that finds its nearest equivalent, I think, in English culture. And that is why the Japanese are subject to various kinds of. In The Japanese Mind, Roger Davies offers Westerners an invaluable key to the unique aspects of Japanese culture.

Readers of this book will gain a clear understanding of what makes the Japanese, and their society, tick. Among the topics explored: aimai (ambiguity), amae (dependence upon others' benevolence), amakudari (the nation's descent from heaven), chinmoku (silence in 4/5(4).
