Old Japan

Secrets from the Shores of the Samurai

by Antony Cummins
Hardback
Publication Date: 20/08/2018
RRP  $32.99 $30.75
In Antony Cummins' new work, the hidden life of Old Japan is brought to the fore using newly translated original documents from the times of the Samurai. Find out what fate befell a convicted criminal (spoiler: it wasn't pretty); why tipping even today is very rare in Japan; what a bunch of worms meant to the taxman; and much, much more. Bringing the myth and the mystery back to this nation of islands, alongside many quirky facts, Cummins provides unrivalled history and insight on a culture as fascinating as it is unique.
