Japan has cultivated its own unique performances and arts over centuries of human history and culture. The closed country sakoku policy during the Edo era cloistered Japan even further and, in many ways, incubated and enabled the arts to flourish further. Japan – 100 Hidden Towns spotlights some of the colourful arts and performances maintained in the remoter parts of the country. Aside from the major arts such as kabuki theatre and noh performance that many people with an interest in Japan will be aware of, there are also many other unique art forms exclusive to Japan’s secluded areas showcased in the book.
