An interesting read, almost like a storybook. It described the different layers of classes in Japan during the Tokugawa era (the last of the Shoguns before the power was replaced to the Emperors) and how they conducted their lives. It was written in 1960s so some of the attitude might not be suitable but it was nonetheless a very good historical and cultural reference. The Tokugawa period, after all, left plenty of traditions even today.
