Japanland: A Year in Search of Wa by Karin Muller

Japanland: A Year in Search of Wa - Karin Muller

A lovely trek through Japan over the course of a year. I saw the documentary on PBS first and that helped create the picture in my mind. A very interesting blend of many Japanese experiences that made me want to know more, both about Japan and the author. Well-written as well.
