In Kansai Cool, anthropologist, writer and filmmaker Christal Whelan offers deep insights into the clash of old and new, traditional and modern that plays out on a daily basis in Japan's ancient heartland. The western region of Japan is known as Kansai—centering around the ancient capitals of Kyoto and Nara, and the sprawling, modern port cities of Osaka and Kobe. Kansai is Japan's "second region" after Tokyo—and is at once home to Japan's most traditional cultural centers and its most modern culture. From the ancient beliefs of Kyoto to the contemporary otaku or "geek" culture of manga, anime, costume play, robots and video games, readers will see how cultures collide in: The needs of the spirit: Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples The arts: dance, painting, anime and martial combat The relationship between hi-tech and old-tech: bikes and robots Fashion trends: from exquisite kimonos to hip haute couture The meaning of landscape: man-made islands and the mystical power of water In this unique collection of 25 essays, Whelan dives beneath the surface of Japan to let readers experience how art, science, faith and history mesh in the Kansai region to produce a singular wellspring of traditional and modern Japanese culture.

Lonely Planet presents Japan's most authentic dishes - direct from the kitchens where they were perfected. From street-food vendors to Michelin-starred chefs, Japan's best local cooks share their passion for food and 60 of their region's classic recipes - from steaming soups and silky ramen noodles to fresh, hand-rolled sushi. Recipes include: Takoyaki - octopus balls Sukiyaki - soy-simmered beef Okonomiyaki - savoury pancakes Torinabe - Chicken and vegetable hotpot Iwashi sushi - Sardine sushi Tonkatsu - deep-fried breaded pork cutlet Teppo-jiru - miso soup with crab Soki soba - Okinawan pork rib ramen with a pork broth And more! It would be easy to assume that Japanese cuisine is all about the food itself. But no. Or at least, it's not only about the food. The cuisine of this teeming archipelago of 3000 islands is a living part of its culture. In Japan, it's believed that food should be devoured with all five senses: not just smell, taste and sight, but also touch (the texture of the ingredients, the smooth warmth of bamboo chopsticks), and even sound (a high-end ryotei is oddly quiet, the better to appreciate the experience of eating). Any Japanese meal - from a simple home-cooked fare to the most structured, formal kaiseki - aims to blend each of these elements for balance and nutrition. Unsurprisingly, this provides myriad benefits for our health, as does the act of lingering over our food and cherishing each mouthful with all our senses - the latter has been proven to aid digestion and portion control. It's clear that meals taken the traditional Japanese way are good for us. That they are such a pleasure to consume, too? Well, that's just a happy coincidence. With sumptuous, original photography and inside stories and tips from Japan's best local cooks of the history, legend, emotion, and process behind each recipe, From the Source - Japan represents global food at its most thrilling. The perfect book for foodies and travel enthusiasts alike!
