About This Book
An anthology of impressions, 'snapshots' and anecdotes, this collection of vignettes conveys vividly what it was like to be a foreigner in Japan in Victorian times. The focus is upon Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, Yokohama, Nagasaki and the other Treaty ports and their vicinity. This amusing and evocative book throws a revealing light both upon the Victorian experience of Japan and upon Japan itself. First published in 1987, this title is part of the Bloomsbury Academic Collections series.
