Notes
  • "During his 1893-94 journey around the world, the Czech traveller, pedagogue, and writer Josef Kořenský, spent a mere two months travelling in Japan, yet his power of observation yielded a travelogue that remains remarkable to this day. Originally published in Czech, In Japan portrays with incisive prose the epic grandeur of the country's landscapes, the elegance of its gardens, the bustle of its cities, and the everday life and customs of its people"--Dust jacket cover.
