Japan may be one of the world’s biggest economies, a global leader in everything from architecture to food and a country whose brands have flourished around the world, but it remains a bit of a mystery.

Somehow it is simultaneously familiar and hard to fathom – or it has been, until now.

This book is the culmination of years of reporting across the country by Monocle and it delivers a unique insight into the people, places and products that define Japan. Whether you’re planning a visit or simply curious, The Monocle Book of Japan will unpack the nation for you.

We’ll take you from snowy Hokkaido in the north to the tropical southern islands of Okinawa and, along the way, deep-dive into the worlds of culture, design, retail and more. It’s Japan revealed as never before.

Monocle magazine was launched in 2007 to provide a briefing on global affairs, business, culture, design and much more. At Monocle, they believed that there was a globally minded audience of readers who were hungry for opportunities and experiences beyond their national borders. 

Outposts of opportunity, people reinventing their cities and nations, businesses rooted in their communities, wise folk with ideas that you should know about, architecture that makes you feel better.

These are just a few of the things that Monocle has been championing for the past 15 years as they have encouraged their readers and listeners to do their part, to head over the horizon to explore – and to have some fun while doing it.

Monocle is the news source for people who want to know more, hear a richness of views not just from the anglosphere and who, despite all the challenges, want to venture out into the world.

On the publishing side, Monocle also developed a book business and in 2020 launched their own independent imprint.
