From its start in 1971, Kousakusha has been crossing the boundaries between science, philosophy, religion and art to bring an interesting mix to the intellectually curious, with illustrations and a design to match.

Our success stories in the 70s and 80s included the Japanese editions of Fritiof Capra's The Tao of Physics, Lyall Watson's Lifetide and James Lovelock's Gaia, followed in the 90s by a selection from Comte de Buffon's Histoire Naturelle, the first complete translation of Goethe's Farbenlehre, and a 10-volume Leibniz collection. Among our more recent publications is a highly acclaimed series on informatics and the brain, as well as several visual books.
