Remarques & avis / Review — Japan still has a few secluded areas, often deep in the mountains, where traditions and people's lifestyle remain unchanged. Such is traditional weaving performed by Japanese women, from cropping, coloring, weaving, to the festivals that follow. A fine photo-reportage thoughout Japan, with fine pictures (especially portraits), as from a distant past, in a well-crafted folio volume. Places: Fukushima, Tohoku (Niigata & Yamagata), Shizuoka, Okinawa, Hyogo.

Le Japon a encore quelques zones reculées, au fin fond des montagnes, où les modes de vie autochtones et les traditions persistent, inchangés. Ainsi du tissage traditionnel féminin, depuis la récolte des plantes, la fabrication des colorants, le tissage, jusqu'aux festivités qui suivent. Un beau photo-reportage à travers tout le Japon, avec de belles images (en particulier les portraits), comme d'autres temps, dans un bon volume grand format. Lieux : Fukushima, Tohoku (Niigata & Yamagata), Shizuoka, Okinawa, Hyogo.
