Starting with the notion that some traditions--like drinking green tea for health and mental acuity--embody timeless wisdom for living, Toshimi A. Kayaki offers dozens of wise old Japanese ways for improving how you look and feel while respecting nature and the environment. Carry your own pair of chopsticks, wear five-toe socks, eat salty plums, use rice water as floor wax, do "eco-laundry," and always set aside 10 percent for savings get the idea. By leading a "green tea life," you'll help yourself and the planet. Toshimi A. Kayaki, born and raised in Japan, now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and has published twenty-two books on women's and cross-cultural issues.

"This diminutive book is packed as tightly as an obento box with an array of mini-essays. And like a good Japanese obento lunch, which always includes five colors (white for rice, green for vegetable, brown for protein, et al.), this book is composed of a little of this and a little of that, all wrapped up neatly in the philosophy that Toshimi Kayaki calls "green tea living." From exercising more to using cash instead of credit cards, these tips will delight anyone who likes to consume their Japanese culture like an umeboshi--a red pickled plum that's the cherry on top." --The Japan Times "Centered around the Japanese tradition of drinking green tea for relaxation and health, Kayaki's upbeat book offers simple tips for a balanced, sustainable lifestyle." --The Sierra Club "[Green Tea Living] offers a vision of the way things could be--a vision living better by following old traditions that proved themselves hundreds of years. Very recommended for everyone who is looking to be healthier, happier and more eco-friendly." --Eco-Libris "In this delightful paperback with illustrations by Miyuki Matsuo, you will find a treasure trove of ideas about simplicity, thrift, homemade remedies, and Japanese wisdom. Kayaki has adopted what she calls "green tea living"--which includes low-calorie foods, regular exercise (walk or bike instead of driving), and meditation. She also offers advice and tips on regularly eating miso soup, using reflexology, trying olive oil on dry skin, facial message with a spoon, and suggestions for living a more frugal life. Not only does green tea have cardiovascular benefits such as lowering blood pressure, it can also be used on the skin as an anti-aging cosmetic, as a means of preventing cavities and taking away bad breath, as a cleaning tool, as a fertilizer for gardening, and as a weight loss tactic (drink a cup before your dinner). Green Tea Living by Toshimi Kayaki is a handy and creative guide to an eco-friendly life." --Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice "The author's writing style is simple and sweet ... [Green Tea Living] is uplifting and comprehensive." --Whitney Halberg, ForeWord * Winner of the 2011 Benjamin Franklin Award in the Self-Help category * Honorable Mention at the 2011 London Book Festival * Honorable Mention at the 2011 Green Book Festival * Finalist in the Environment /Green category of the 2010 National Indie Excellence Awards

5.0 von 5 Sternen A PERFECT AIRPORT GIFT BOOK 6. Januar 2010
Von Hajime Ohno - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Although this type of cross-cultural guide to "healthy green living" may not be everyone's cup of tea, if you finish the book, you realize that the core values and practical habits the author promotes in this book are consistent with those preached by your grandparents or great grandparents who weathered America's Great Depression ("Waste not, want not"). Some of the aphorisms mentioned in the book ("An 80%-full moderate diet keeps the doctor away") also evoke universal qualities.

I especially liked the ideas of using the oshibori wet hand towel (certainly, more sushi restaurants in the U.S. can adopt this custom!), the furoshiki eco-bag (origami-like magic wrapping cloth), and the yutampo hot water bottle, which has made a big comeback lately in Japan.

Also with some reference to the author's own intercultural journey, this is an excellent introductory guide to those who may want to visit Japan sometime in the future. In fact, this little book can keep boredom at bay during airport waiting time, and by the time your plane arrives at Narita Airport, you'll be armed with nifty traditional Japanese insights, which will be great ice-breakers during your trip as well. I highly recommend this book as a gift for all occasions.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Worth reading - would make a great gift 6. November 2011
Von GoStanford - Veröffentlicht auf
I should clarify my scale:

1 star - not worth buying
2 stars - borrow it if you are curious
3 stars - worth reading once - but not necessary to keep
4 stars - worth owning
5 stars - should have a place on your shelf

I am an avid fan of Japanese culture and have a great deal of respect for Japanese traditions. This is a lovely little book, and, as mentioned by another reviewer, would make a wonderful hostess/travel gift. I wish somebody would give me a book like this as a little present! It is fairly expensive for the size and level of detail, and for people who have travelled extensively in Japan, not much of this may be new, but it is well-crafted and merits consideration as far as whether to purchase it.

Kudos to the author for spreading lots of positive information about how to be mindful of our environment, our homes, and our bodies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life-Changing 7. März 2013
Von Jill Ireland - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I was already well on the path to integrating traditional Japanese items and practices into an American life (thanks mostly to Amazon!), but this book took me so much further. This book has reduced my cost of living, yet added so much simplicity and beauty and pleasure to my daily life. I no longer spend money on the expensive and absurdly marketed cleaning products on store shelves, I eat food my body's happy about, and my health and appearance have improved with the use of the author's tips. One needs access to a Korean or Asian market (H-Mart is great), or Amazon can supply many of the suggested products. Highly recommended book!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good tips an tricks 1. März 2013
Von Kat - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Many of these ideas are not specifically Japanese and some are obvious to anyone who's done even a bit of reading on living green, but there are still some good facts and ideas. The light writing style and pleasant but short personal anecdotes help add to what would have been an otherwise less than enjoyable read. I'd say read it once but don't have overly high expectations.

Von Jaime Weilacher - Veröffentlicht auf

I love this book more than everything! This email s my go-to for whatever kind of inspiration I'm in the mood for: beauty tips, cleaning tips, foods to eat, recycling tips, so many ingenious ideas. And a wonderful philosophy to live by. I actually gave my copy to my aunt, so I have I'll be buying another. Would make a great gift!
