David Suzuki, a Canadian biologist and environmentalist of Japanese descent, and Keibo Oiwa, an anthropologist raised in Japan but of Korean descent, journeyed through Japan in 1995 finding and interviewing men and women who showed them another side of the country. They met artists and farmers, grocers and teachers, TV reporters and scientists, Aboriginal peoples and "untouchables." And they found concern for peace, a passion for ancestral ways, a love of community, and a determination to fight against environmental destruction. In this book they bring these people, their ideas, and their values to life. We hear the voices of the other Japan -- a land of diversity, wonder, and hope - a Japan we never knew.  They discovered a Japan more diverse than the monoculture they initially envisioned.
