Explore contemporary writing and culture from Japan

Japan Now returns to the British Library with a packed day exploring contemporary writing and culture from this fascinating country.

Alex Kerr, author of Lost Japan, reflects on the beauty and destruction of the Japanese landscape, and leading writers, including Hiromi Kawakami, author of Strange Weather in Tokyo, Masatsugu Ono and Yoko Tawada read from new work, alongside artists who view Japan through the lens of film and photography.

This ticket includes free entry into the Momoko Ando film screening  at 18.30, subject to capacity.

Programmed by Modern Culture in partnership with the Japan Foundation and Writers’ Centre Norwich and supported by Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, the Nippon Foundation and the Japan Society.
