Hearn’s first work after his arrival in Japan, and the pinnacle
of his works which belong to the genre of travel books and
reportage. Drawing on his five senses, he expressed the
fundamental culture of Matsue, Izumo and Sanin Area,
provincial areas in Japan, together with his ethnological
observation of the people’s inner joy in a literary way. The
tension between the culture and the people’s inner joy
described has made the book a longtime seller - Takis Efstathiou
