it was ok
Read in August, 2007

Having lived in Hiroshima four years or so now, the reality
of these islands just off my coast (my coast?) breathes
an air of reality into this particular work. Giving this
situation I am quite enjoying the book.

That being said, Donald Richie seems to be quite taken with
himself, and although he is quite capable of pithy humour
as well as richly descriptive prose, the texts tone is,
in a single word, pompous.
