Why Kantoken ?

In Japanese, there are two verbs for ‘regarder’ (to watch) : ‘Kan’ to look at the inside of things, and ‘ken’ to look at the outside.

Founded in 2013, Kantoken is a publishing house based in Brussels. It is in this European capital, a true melting pot of cultures, that we want to bring together different points of view, strange or foreign, from contemporary literature.

We publish texts by well-known authors valued in their country or field who have never or barely been translated into French. We work with renowned translators and exceptional authors of forewords.
