The Forgotten Japanese : Encounters with Rural Life and Folklore, Hardback Book

The Forgotten Japanese : Encounters with Rural Life and Folklore Hardback

Description

Tsuneichi Miyamoto (1907-1981), a leading Japanese folklore scholar and rural advocate, walked 160,000 kilometers to conduct interviews and capture a dying way of life.

This collection of photos, vignettes, and life stories from pre- and postwar rural Japan is the first English translation of his modern Japanese classic.

From blowfish to landslides, Miyamoto's stories come to life in Jeffrey Irish's fluid translation.
