The Japanese Bath

The Japanese Bath Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the West, a bath is a place one goes to cleanse the body. In Japan, one goes there to cleanse the soul. Bathing in Japan is about much more than cleanliness: it is about family and community. It is about being alone and contemplative, time to watch the moon rise above the garden. Along with sixty full-color illustrations of the light and airy baths themselves, The Japanese Bath, delves into the aesthetic of bathing Japanese style and the innate beauty of the steps surrounding the process. The authors explain how to create a Japanese bath in your own home. A Zen meditation, the Japanese bath, indeed, cleanses the soul, and one emerges refreshed, renewed, and serene.

Book News Annotation:

Delves into the aesthetic of bathing Japanese style, and presents lovely color photos illustrating different materials, styles, and designs of baths, bathing rooms, and gardens. There is information on selecting colors and lighting, and on planning and constructing this refuge of relaxation. Includes a glossary. The authors write on the arts and crafts movement and on Japanese aesthetics.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
