About The Forgotten Japanese Encounters with Rural Life and Folklore

The Forgotten Japanese: Encounters with Rural Life and Folklore is written by Tsuneichi Miyamoto.

Tsuneichi Miyamoto (1907-1981), a Japanese folklore scholar and rural advocate, walked 160,000 kilometers to conduct interviews and capture a dying way of life. This collection of photos, vignettes, and life stories from pre- and postwar rural Japan is the first English translation of his modern Japanese classic. From blowfish to landslides, Miyamoto's stories come to life in Jeffrey Irish's fluid translation.
