"So special is the sound of the wind passing through a bamboo forest in Kyoto that it has been designated one of Japan’s 100 ‘soundscapes’" (from Giappomania)Japan is something else. It is millenary, it is modern and it is mysterious. And it is much loved. Electa, Mondadori and Rizzoli have always focused special attention on it, publishing numerous books on its art, architecture, fashion and food.
Giappomania (Rizzoli) is fully illustrated in colour with beautiful drawings and lifts the lid on Japan’s traditions and lifestyles, everything that "makes Japan what it is" and that often only the Japanese really know.
