What is a good book to read about Japan and its cultural history? I'm really intrigued by it, especially after reading about based Mishima and skimming Wikipedia pages. I would love to learn more.
Hideo Okuda reflects the society nice in Lala Pipo. Taichi Yamada gives a look into the soul and deep wishes. Akira Kudo about the youth culture. Kenzaburo Oe´s stuff for the past-war time, very interesting.
