Another Kyoto

This is a matchless guide to a great city, It is the fruit of Alex Kerr’s half-century of living in Japan and of lore gleaned from people he’s met along the way: artists, Zen monks and Shinto priests, Japanese literati, and expat personalities from days past, such as legendary art dealer David Kidd. Kerr turns what we thought we knew about Kyoto inside-out, revealing the inner ideas behind simple things like walls, floors, and sliding doors. After this book, one can never walk through a Zen gate in the same way again.
