Praise

“Ronald Dore gives the reader a richly informative and absolutely fascinating picture, not just of a Japanese village at one moment in time, but of this village changing rapidly over the two decades of his visits to it between 1955 and 1975 and actually, through the memories of its older residents, over a longer period of time starting with the early 1900s. He writes with the eye for detail and also the literary skill of a Victorian novelist, but at the same time with sympathy, reliability, and depth of understanding of England’s leading authority on Japan. . . . This book presents a marvelously intimate view  into the flood of little changes that lie behind that great transformations that have swept Japan in recent times. . . . It makes as enlightening, fascinating, and often amusing reading for the casual reader as for the specialist and will, I have no doubt, become a ‘classic.’”
—Edwin O. Reischauer
