Akemi Tanaka, a Japanese business owner, teacher, and lecturer, has crafted an inspiring and accessible guide to chowa, the Japanese practice that cultivates peace, balance, and harmony in everyday life. June Angela narrates softly at an appropriate pace. Her tone sounds optimistic. Tanaka expertly describes the influence of chowa in Japan, making the audiobook a delightful way to learn about aspects of Japanese culture and history. Some of the most harmonious passages occur when Angela slips easily between speaking English and Japanese. Whether discussing food and fashion, workplace etiquette, or why Hello Kitty doesn't have a mouth, Tanaka reveals chowa to be the philosophical scaffolding behind life in Japan.
