Japanland: A Year in Search of Wa
Karin Muller (au)
Karin knew that the Japanese had a word for the seemingly effortless state of harmony she longed for: “wa.” Yes, “wa” is what she wanted. So begins Karin’s quest to deepen her appreciation for such Eastern ideals as unquestioning commitment & single-minded devotion to detail. She discovers how complicated it is being Japanese. Along the way, she gets to know the cultural biases & quirks of a cast of characters, including Yukiko & Genji, her host mother & father; Junko, Karin’s Japanese “sister,” who is rebellious yet utterly dependent on her parents; Roberto, a native of Brazil who has committed years of his life to learning the ancient craft of swordmaking; as well as sumo, geishas, Buddhist monks, & even the workaholic, career-track salaryman.
