Description

This is an essay on aesthetics by one of the greatest Japanese novelists.The text ranges over architecture, jade, food, toilets, and combines an acute sense of the use of space in buildings, as well as perfect descriptions of lacquerware under candlelight and women in the darkness of the house of pleasure.The essay forms a classic description of the collision between the shadows of traditional Japanese interiors and the dazzling light of the modern age.
