In Antony Cummins' new work, the hidden life of Old Japan is brought to the fore using newly translated original documents from the times of the Samurai. Find out what fate befell a convicted criminal (spoiler: it wasn't pretty); why tipping even today is very rare in Japan; what a bunch of worms meant to the taxman; and much, much more. Bringing the myth and the mystery back to this nation of islands, alongside many quirky facts, Cummins provides unrivalled history and insight on a culture as fascinating as it is unique. AUTHOR: Antony Cummins has a Masters degree in Archaeology and is author of In Search of the Ninja, Iga and Koka Ninja Skills, Samurai War Stories, Book of Ninja, Book of Samurai, True Path of the Ninja and Secrets of the Shinobi. Antony has appeared in such documentaries as Ninja Shadow Warriors, Samurai Head Hunters, Samurai Warrior Queens and Ancient Black Black Ops. He lives in the UK and often travels to Japan to research Japanese warrior culture. 50 b/w illustrations
