Japan Story is a fascinating, surprising account of Japan's culture, from the 'opening up' of the country in the mid 19th century to the present, through the eyes of people who had their doubts about the benefits of modernity. We encounter these 'dark blossoms' in Harding's book; writers of dramas, ghost stories and crime novels, rebel kamikaze pilots, men in desperate search of the eternal feminine and feminists in search of something more than state-sanctioned subservience, Buddhists without morals and Marxist terror groups.
