Traditional Japanese design imbues objects with a sense of history and artistry that easily reaches across cultural boundaries.

Elegant wooden tansu chests
Elaborate tea ceremony implements
Exquisitely carved netsuke toggles
Fabulous silk-and-gold embroidered kimonos

Each item is described in loving detail alongside lovely full-color photographs that highlight the great artistry and craftsmanship in everyday items used by real people in traditional Japan.

Michael Freeman has photographed extensively in Asia, both for magazines and for numerous books, including Japan Modern and China Home.
