Concrete evidence of this traditional culture can be seen everywhere--in the ancient arts and crafts that are still important parts of everyday life, in the many shrines and temples that dot the nation, and in the modern comeback of traditional fashions such as kimono and yakata robes.

SHort book that is perfect for those wanting a very basic set of rules so you do not come across as a rhino in a china-shop when visiting Japan. THis is not a very DEEP book, but a good starting point for more detialed research at a later date. ( )
