Christoph Peters has long been regarded as one of the country's most Japanophile authors. Several of his novels are set in Japan, he is trained in the traditional tea ceremony and collects Japanese ceramics. But it long remained a
fascination from afar: Decades passed before he set foot on Japanese soil for the first time, during which he studied the country in depth. He has recorded the experiences of his first visit in his travelogue Tage in Tokio.
The text is a reflection on the foreign and the familiar, on projections and clichés, on what can be read and what can be experienced. Above all, however, it is a declaration of love for a fascinating and contradictory country. Peters talks about Japanese culture, art and spirituality – and about what our encounters with it reveal about ourselves. Mod.: Claudia Dichter
