The Heart of Japan: Glimpses of Life and Nature, Far from the Travellers Track, in the Land of the Rising Sun (Classic Reprint) (Paperback)
Excerpt from The Heart of Japan: Glimpses of Life and Nature, Far From the Travellers Track, in the Land of the Rising Sun In striving to reproduce some faint tint of this charm, it seemed wisest to present each episode or impression separately - here a personal experience, there a story heard in some peasant's hut or among the temples, or from some old warrior of the feudal days, and again a ventured comment, picturing different phases of the life of Japan, one after another, as on a screen - seemingly detached, perhaps, yet knit together by the underlying desire to present the native point of view.
