Summary

  • How do you tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese architecture? How do you know, from the structure, the differences between a Buddhist temple from a Shinto shrine, from a residence? Construction, design, carpentry and the history of Japanese architecture from pre-history to the 19th century are the focus of this book with its 300 illustrations.
