About this book

It is often claimed that the Japanese have a particular love for nature, a love commonly reflected in their art and material culture. But today equal notice is being given to the environmental degradation caused by the Japanese at home as well as abroad. The main message of the book is that `nature' and the `natural' are concepts very much conditioned by their context, an approach quite different from the uncompromising stance so often found in the West.
