Product Description

<b>When D.G. Hilton sets out with a backpack to explore Japan on his own for three months, trying to escape a life on pause, he begins an adventure that will alter the course of his life.</b><br /><br />Starting on Japan’s main island of Honshu, Hilton visits the rural home of an ex-girlfriend who tries to rekindle the flame, before making his way south to Kyushu on a road trip with a failed geisha who didn’t make the cut. All the while, he dives into Japan’s history, its rural roots, and its modern culture.<br /><br />This passionate, humorous, and deeply personal tale is more than a travel story and more than a paean to a fascinating country and an amazing culture. It’s also one man’s story of escaping his past and discovering an unexpected future far from home. <br /><br />With keen observations and vivid writing, Hilton brings modern Japan and the outsider’s place in it to life like few other writers have. The result is much like the book itself: moving, poignant, and truly unforgettable.

This vintage book from 1904 has been digitally converted to downloadable format with original illustrations. A great classic for the home or classroom, an interesting old-fashioned reference book, and an outstanding find.<br /><br />PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION:<br /><br />The following sketches of life in Japan and the voyage there and back are taken from a diary which I kept during my travels.<br />As Japan and its wonderful little people have come so much before the world during the last few years, and especially at this time are one of the chief factors in the crisis in the Far East, I thought that these reminiscences and anecdotes taken from real life might be of interest.<br /><br />I am indebted to the editors of the Cornhill, Sketch, Sunday, and the Buenos Aires Standard for the reproduction of some of the following sketches.<br /><br />ELLA HART BENNETT.<br />1904.

Message from the author of this book<br /><br />“Have you ever been to Cambodia? I’ve been there once.<br />A few months before the trip to this country, I traveled in Tohoku region, where Buddhist traditions exist lively, and that rice is raised. Cambodia is also Buddhist and rice-productive, but has many differences from Tohoku. A cultural sphere can have variations… That’s not to wonder, but made me wonder and take lots of photographs.<br />This book is the carnet de voyage written with images and drawn with words.”<br /><br />The author’s Facebook page URL is as follows:<br />https://www.facebook.com/miho.yamazaki.5648<br /><br /><br />この本の著者からのメッセージ<br /><br />皆さんはカンボジアにいらしたことがございますでしょうか? 私は、一度だけ。<br />この国への旅の数か月前、私は日本の東北地方を旅しました。仏教の伝統が息づく米作の地です。カンボジアもやはり仏教国で、米も生産していましたが、東北とは大きく異なっていました。一つの文化圏は複数のヴァリエーションを持ち/変奏を奏で得る… 驚くべきことではないのですが、私にとっては驚きでした。写真もたくさん撮りました。<br />この本はそうした旅にまつわる、イメージで綴られ言葉で描かれた手記です。<br /><br />著者のフェイスブックページのURLは以下になります :<br />https://www.facebook.com/miho.yamazaki.5648

Japón combina, como pocos países, modernidad y tradición. Participa en la carrera del espacio y desarrolla robots, pero sus habitantes siguen vistiendo kimonos, realizando la ceremonia del té, disfrutando del sutil teatro kabuki...<br />Símbolo de la modernidad de Japón es Tokio, centro de dirección económica y de creación cultural. Es la sede del gobierno y de la mayoría de grandes empresas, y también es una ciudad de barrios populares, que alberga el elegante palacio imperial, el templo budista de Asakusa o el gran santuario sintoísta de Meiji.<br />Kioto es la otra cara de la moneda. Representa la historia esplendorosa del Japón. Se enorgullece del palacio del sogún, de centenares de templos budistas, de sus santuarios sintoístas, jardines zen o de viejos edificios de madera.<br />Por supuesto, Japón no se acaba en sus dos ciudades más famosas: el monte Fuji; el santuario de Nikko; la antigua capital sogunal de Kamakura; la sagrada Nara, las modernas Osaka y Kobe, el majestuoso castillo de Himeji o el gran centro budista del monte Koya son algunos de los escenarios que recorre esta completa guía sobre el país más enigmático de Oriente.

Der Mekong ist mit seinen etwa 4.500 Kilometern der zehntlängste Fluss der Erde. Er gilt als Lebensader Südostasiens und fließt durch China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Kambodscha und Vietnam. <br /><br />Mit Fahrrad, Bus und Boot begleitet Volker Häring den Mekong vom tibetischen Hochland bis in die kambodschanische Tiefebene und erzählt dabei vom Leben entlang des drittgrößten Stroms Asiens. Er trinkt Wein mit in die Jahre gekommenen chinesischen Ministranten, lernt in Laos die Langsamkeit kennen und entdeckt die unbekannten Mekongufer Kambodschas. <br /><br />Eine Reise entlang des Mekongs ist immer auch eine Reise in Umwegen. Die sind mal rührend, mal traurig, meistens aber heiter – und führen immer zum Ziel: Dem Mythos Mekong näher zu kommen. Ohne falschen Pathos und immer mit einem Schuss Ironie.
