The Japanese talk about ikigai as 'a reason to get up in the morning' whether you are a cleaner on the famous Shinkansen bullet train, a new mother or a Michelin-starred sushi chef. But how do you find your own ikigai? How does ikigai contribute to happiness? Neuroscientist and bestselling Japanese writer Ken Mogi provides an absorbing insight into this way of life, incorporating scientific research and first-hand experience, and providing a colourful narrative of Japanese culture and history along the way.
