According to Shinto belief, the human body in Japan is part of nature and must be in harmony with the wider world. This is a cultural history of the human body in Japan - from the Samurai to Issy Miyake- exploring the social codes and aesthetics of behaviour it involves. The sacred body of religion, the body of the dead, the theatrical body of the Kabuki actor, the warrior's body and much more are revealed.
