Reporting Japan: From Marco Polo to the Internet Age

Japanese painting -sea-

Feature: Since the country’s first contacts with the outside world, Japan has inspired foreign writers to pick up the pen and report what they have seen. Over the centuries the collective output has been prolific, but these reporters have brought varying degrees of clarity and insight to their work, so who do we start with when we want to read about the real Japan?
