It’s such a wonderful country that is deserves such a lovely book! Twenty writers have penned their outlook on this fascinating place.
My favourite was Pig Skin by Andres Felipe Solano, who tells a touching story of how he and his wife enjoy a ferry journey in Japan after winning a trip to the country through their mobile phone company.
This together with the sensitive poem called The Japanese Firefly Squad by Kimiko Hahn and some interesting, if weird pictures, makes this a must for all fans of Japan and wonderful tales!
