  • Looking For The Lost: Journeys Through A Vanishing Japan
  • Alan Booth.
  • Pb, 390 pages. New edition 1996
From the author of The Roads to Sata', this book tells the story of an odyssey to the vanishing heart of Japan. A VIBRANT, MEDITATIVE WALK IN SEARCH OF THE SOUL OF JAPAN Traveling by foot through mountains and villages, Alan Booth found a Japan far removed from the stereotypes familiar to Westerners. Whether retracing the footsteps of ancient warriors or detailing the encroachments of suburban sprawl, he unerringly finds the telling detail, the unexpected transformation, the everyday drama that brings this remote world to life on the page.
