CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A photographic portrait of Japan today. Modern Japan, the second largest
economy in the world, is a land of contradictions. Home to some of the most
sophisticated technology and manufacturing, it also has communities whose daily
life has changed little in the last five hundred years. It is a land of great
beauty, both in the landscape and in its celebrations, festivals, and
traditional arts. After photographing China, Korea, and the United States,
Hiroji Kubota spent three years traveling the length and breadth of Japan's
many islands, capturing the magnificent diversity of his own country. From rice
paddies to pachinko parlors, ancient temples to the Honda assembly plants,
Kobota's lens has captured both the ordinary and the extraordinary. 185
