Christopher Harding’s new book is a fresh and surprising account of Japan's culture from the 'opening up' of the country in the mid-nineteenth century to the present, perfectly timed for the forthcoming Olympic Games. In it, we encounter writers of dramas, ghost stories and crime novels, rebel kamikaze pilots and the put-upon urban poor; hypnotists and gangsters, Buddhists without morals and Marxist terror groups. These people all sprang from the soil of modern Japan, but their personalities and projects failed to fit. They were 'dark blossoms': both East-West hybrids and home-grown varieties that penetrated the new structures of mainstream Japan.
