First published in 1937, this collection presents a series of vignettes on Japanese life and thought, taken from 25 years of the author's work for the Japanese tourist board between 1912 and 1937.

Dealing in subjects as diverse as wrestling, singing insects and Japanese humour, this reissue offers a fascinating insight into the life and culture of pre-World War Two Japan which is of great historical interest, not only to students of Asian studies but to all those interested in Japan, its people and its heritage.
