The people and culture of Japan : conversations between Donald Keene and Shiba Ryotaro by Ryōtarō Shiba( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The People and Culture of Japan features conversations between Donald Keene, a preeminent scholar of Japanese literature, and Shiba Ryotaro, the author who continued to contemplate the human condition through his original and distinctive lens of history. These talks-which mainly explore the foundations of Japanese culture-took place in Japanese on three occasions in 1971, in the historic cities of Nara, Kyoto, and Osaka. Drawing on their profound insights into Japan's relations with foreign cultures over the course of Japanese history, the two engage in a passionate discussion of their first-hand impressions and observations of Japanese culture." from back cover
Kukai the universal : scenes from his life by Ryōtarō Shiba( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kukai The Universal is an extensively researched biography chronicling the life of Kukai, the visionary Japanese monk of the ninth century whose profound influence touched every aspect of Japan's civilization." "Kukai was born in 774 into a declining aristocratic family, whose design was for him to become a statesman. However, he soon became disillusioned with the ways of politics and took a new path in life, pursuing his Buddhist studies and practicing meditation while roaming the country as an itinerant hermit." "At the age of 30, Kukai sailed to China to become student monk under the tutelage of Huiguo, the patriarch of esoteric Buddhism. Returning to Japan in 806 as a master of esoteric Buddhist teachings, Kukai initiated the building of a monastic center on Mt. Koya for the practice of Buddhism. This, and the founding and systemization of the Shingon doctrine were Kukai's major concerns for the remainder of his life. In 823 the Emperor Saga presented him with Toji, the most important temple in Kyoto, which became the headquarters for the Shingon sect." "Kukai is known as the father of Japanese culture: he invented the kana syllabary, the basis of Japanese written language forms, was the originator of the pilgrimage circuit of 88 temples in Shikoku, a builder of lakes, a poet, calligrapher, sculptor, and the lexicographer who compiled the oldest extant dictionary. He was also founder of the oldest school in Japan."--Jacket
