Editorial Reviews

Review

'This impressive study of the modern Japanese home takes the reader into the domestic worlds of middle-class men and women, showing how aesthetic practices are shaped by national ideologies regarding gender and the family, as well as by a sense of the past encountering the transformative energies of modernization.' David Morgan, Duke University

I was super excited to get this book and learn more about Japanese homes and material culture. The book is thorough and well written and offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of modern, everyday homes in Japan. It's a little academic as opposed to more pleasure reading and I found myself skimming certain parts in the middle where the writing was a bit repetitive around some themes. However, overall it is a solid offering with beautiful full color pictures and is a must have for any more anthropological lover of Japan.

I have really enjoyed reading this book. It was a fascinating look into Japanese material culture. It made me re-think how I manage my own house in relationship to my stuff. I also feel like I can understand anime much more when I watch it. Stuff that didn't make sense before (like luck and tatami mats)now make perfect sense.
