Kawaii Japan's culture of cute is a book by author Manami Okazaki that documents Japan's kawaii culture in all its manifestations. We interview some of the most famous Japanese shojo manga artists, illustrators, designers, artists who encapsulate the kawaii aesthetic in their work.

Just received this, from ELLE (JP)'s February 2017 print edition. They ask editors of prominent magazines to recommend three books that moved their soul, and Ms. Deguchi from Fujingaho, a culture magazine with over 100 years history listed my kokeshi book.
I am so grateful and honoured!
