I love books. You love books. Who doesn't love books?
Which is why I've opened The Real Japan Amazon store.
As much as I also love my tech, there's still nothing quite like a book to grab the attention - and the heart.
The Real Japan Amazon Store - Open for Business!
Whether it contains pure text, gorgeous photography, quality information, beautiful design, or entertainment, I never miss an opportunity to have a read - at home, on a plane, in a cafe, in a ryokan (I don't do beaches).
As my wife will attest, I'll also gladly spend many hours browsing books stores - whether on the high street or online.
To share a passion
So, to share that passion with you I've created a store.
To begin with, all the items available in The Real Japan Amazon store are books. Partly because I'm a massive fan of the printed page, and partly because you are too.
Visit: The Real Japan Amazon Store
Some of you had already purchased books through links on this website. So it seemed logical to make it easier for you to find books about Japan that you might be interested in.
How I choose what to include
The titles I have collected to launch with are either:
- in my personal collection
- read and recommended by me
- reviewed on The Real Japan
- are Amazon bestsellers in their category
Browse: The Real Japan Amazon Store
Everything is classified
Whether you're browsing for inspiration or want to find a particular title it's easy. Everything is classified into one of four categories:
Look for the comment box top right of all the items to see the titles especially recommended by The Real Japan.
Have a recommendation of your own?
If you've read a book about Japan and would strongly recommend it, and it isn't yet included in the store, let me know and I may add it.
For every item you buy through the store, The Real Japan earns a very small commission. So by shopping there you are directly supporting this website which helps keep the content free for you.
Please do share this news and this link: https://www.amazon.com/shop/therealjapan with friends and family. (Social share buttons can be found at the bottom of this post.)
If the feedback over time is that I should expand this into related products - I'll gladly consider that. So be sure to let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.
