A visual exploration of modern Japan through the eye and art of Vahram Muratyan, author of the iconic Paris vs. New York

Conceived from a lifelong curiosity about Japanese culture, fed and fomented by Vahram Muratyan’s travels to Japan, JAPAN IS… is a vivid exploration through Japan. Drawing upon his memories as a child of the ‘80s, playing Mario Kart and Tamagotchi, watching My Neighbor Totoro and Ghost in the Shell, combined with his notes and observations from visits to Japan, the author of the acclaimed Paris vs. New York has created an album of visual sensations and cultural experiences.

Envisaged as an anadiplosis, a walk through this unique country, the design of the book itself takes a Japanese form: uninterrupted in its story, a long scroll unfurling as it escapes to infinity.
