A new book by Phil Lee, chronicling his journey through Japan, uncovering the beauty and traditions of Japanese culture.
In Cultural Kaiseki, author Phil Lee goes beyond the usual tourist spots to seek out the hidden gems—places that offer glimpses into Japanese culture. He watched a bullfight in small-town Japan, saw how samurai swords are made, went dog sledding in snowy Hokkaido, and visited the heart of the Fukushima nuclear zone.
Not your usual guidebook, Cultural Kaiseki is a collection of stories and experiences presented in small segments, like a Japanese Kaiseki meal where several small, bite-sized courses are served. Experience this journey through bite-sized stories of discovery and adventure that add up to a larger understanding of Japanese culture.
Whether you are a newcomer or a seasoned expat living in Japan, there is always something new just around the corner.
