    Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha Globe Review ç 2 Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha GlobeI was really impressed with Alan Booth's Roads to Sata and was relishing the chance to read his follow up Looking For The Lost 1995 And again I was impressed the first section Tsugaru is Booth's retracing the path of Aomori author Osamu Dazai who was famous for his writing and booze

    Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha Globe Review ç 2 Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha GlobeThis is surely one of the most well written travel books on Japan Booth's breathtaking prose comes as naturally as putting one foot before the other as he meanders around Japan It's the kind of book you read slowly to take in all he is offering to your senses He tells you what he sees and relates every detail vividly without falling into surr

    Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha Globe Review ç 2 Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha GlobeThis book is an amazing travel accountBooth is a walker no matter the weather no matter how awful the road He speaks Japanese he's intelligent and talkative and he talks to the people he meets The experiences he makes good bad funny strange are shared in wonderfully engaging language There is the odd introspection or memory of former visits or happenings in his life too It doesn't happen often and because Booth comes across as such a down to earth guy this added to the charm of the book It wasn't tedious or uncalled for it becomes a part of his discovery process of the country as he walksIn this book Booth chronicles three journeys taken along the roads travelled by a famous writer a military general and lastly by the remnants

    Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha Globe Review ç 2 Looking for the Lost Journeys Through a Vanishing Japan Kodansha GlobeAn ok book like his other work Roads to SataStill just the same a bit repetitiveEven so he gives some nice insights in Japanese cultureFor example his explanation of the crux of Japanese literature on the brevity or human glory and the eternal sadness with which the world is charged To be specific a reference from a short story of Akutagawa's life of a foolish man 'ah what is a human life a drop of dew a flash of lightning This is sad so sad' Reading these insights makes me contemplate what else he could have written if it wasn't for his
