With one eye toward the future and one looking to the past, Japan is a world of striking contrasts that translate dramatically to the medium of photography. Edgy and multidimensional, this stunning photo essay was born of several years' research by a pair of accomplished documentarians with a keen sensibility for style and social behavior. It captures the unsettling shadows and contradictions within the pageantry of the Land of the Rising Sun.

The authors address spiritual beliefs, art, and industry, cultural and generational diversity, and unearth ancient customs of sword making, calligraphy, and Sumo, as well as an animated nightlife (involving both Pachinko and other less wholesome entertainments like the "Lolita complex").
