Be More Japan: The Art of Japanese Living
 
  7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Join us at Stanfords for the launch event of the new DK Eyewitness guide Be More Japan – an evening of cultural insight, top travel tips and Japanese whisky tasting! Be More Japan is a celebration of all things Japanese, from the country’s fascinating, ancient traditions to its unique and influential modern culture.
 
 
This event will be a panel discussion between travel industry experts covering a wide range of topics, including history, culture, art and ideas as well as travel information and tips on how to plan the perfect trip. Blending both travel information and cultural insights into a single book, Be More Japan helps you understand and experience the best of Japan, both at home and abroad.
 
 
Beginning with an overview of the four seasons – a key theme in Japanese culture – with this guide you’ll learn about the festivals, food, fashion and flowers that change throughout the year and make this country so full of fun and variety. Then dive into the captivating culture of Japan, with ​topics such as art, music, food, wellness ​and innovation​,​ ​all split into separate sections to help you pinpoint the areas that interest you.
 
 
Learn about the ​traditional skills of the tea ceremony and calligraphy​, and where you can go to see and practise them yourself. Find out more about ​the country’s most popular sports​ and where to catch a game of baseball or see a martial arts exposition. For ​pop culture​ fans, there are dedicated sections on ​J-Pop​, anime​ and ​video games​, with plenty of information on the best places to enjoy them in Japan. And if you want to get a feel for ​modern Japanese lifestyle​, you’ll find enough details on topics such as ​transport, karaoke, ​ikigai​, shopping and​ hot springs ​to help you make the most of even a short trip to Japan.
 
 
 
You can pick and choose what interests you to plan your perfect trip, or explore a bit of everything to get a sense of the essentials of Japanese life and culture. And for those who can’t make the trip to Japan, or who want to carry on the experience when they return, there are tips and suggestions for how to bring Japanese culture to you, and places where you can see its influence around the world.
