Description

A personal record of Lafcadio Hearn's first four years as a Western resident and pilgrim observing the common people of Japan in many places of popular interest.
''This is the life of which a foreign observer can never weary, if fortunate and sympathetic enough to enter into it—the life that forces him sometimes to doubt whether the course of our boasted Western progress is really in the direction of moral development. Each day, while the years pass, there will be revealed to him some strange and unsuspected beauty in it. Like other life, it has its darker side; yet even this is brightness compared with the darker side of Western existence. It has its foibles, its follies, its vices, its cruelties; yet the more one sees of it, the more one marvels at its extraordinary goodness, its miraculous patience, its never-failing courtesy, its Simplicity of heart, its intuitive charity.'' - From the Preface by Lafcadio Hearn
