Description
 
Donald Keene (au). A collection of journals written by Japanese who traveled to America, Europe, & China between 1860 & 1920. The narratives provide insight into Japanese society through the diarists’ reactions to alien customs. The diaries record personal yet overarching views of the countries & their cultures & sentiments that range from delight to disillusionment. Various themes link the diaries & impart a unity to these accounts by men & women who wrote under strikingly different circumstances. “A superb contribution to our understanding of the Japanese.” “These are the luminous details of which the best histories are made.” A NY Times Best Book of 1995.
