Mirror, Sword & Jewel | by Kurt Singer

A Must-Read for anyone who travels to Japan or is interested in japanese culture. Although Japan has changed a lot since Kurt Singers stay in Japan, most things are still present and will lead you to think about.


“The way in which the Japanese proceed in assimilating foreign elements ofculture – ideas, styles, institutions, creeds – often resembles somewhat . . . the submission by women to a new fashion. . . . What attracts their attention is always the new, the contemporary, the modern.”

– Kurt Singer
