This book tells the story of British royal contact with Japan between 1603 and 1937, when the exchange of exquisite works of arts was central to both diplomatic relations and cultural contact. As a result, the Royal Collection has one of the most significant holdings of Japanese works of art in the western world.

Featuring new research and stunning photography, the book showcases the consummate craftsmanship and rich cultural traditions behind three centuries’ worth of porcelain, lacquer, armour, embroidery, metalwork and works on paper.
