In this book the author writes about the more than 4 years he spent visiting hundreds of Japanese homes and learning as much as possible about their construction, design, furnishings, and relative merits.

Synopsis:

More than three hundred detailed illustrations by the author provide accurate information on types of houses, interiors of both ordinary and teahouse rooms, floor plans, roof detailing, methods of structure and construction, gardens, decorations, tools, furniture, and fittings.
