This book is a collection of 5 products with excellent designs representing 47 prefectures all over Japan, 5 in each prefecture, and a total of 235 items.

From traditional crafts to super-modern designs, every land has its own unique products.
By feeling the current state of Japanese “manufacturing” through these “products,” it will be an opportunity to recapture Japan’s individuality, design, and regional manufacturing, and rediscover Japan.
