Carol (carolfromnc) | 1280 comments In an article published in the WashingtonPost today about a trivial American YouTube-r at Aokigahara Jukai forest, the reporter references, "Tower of Waves, a 1960s novel by Seichō Matsumoto, featuring] a beautiful, love-torn heroine who commits suicide there."

I looked at a list of Matsumoto's novels here, but can't identify it. Does anyone know which novel they are referencing?

Here's a link to the full article if anyone is interested.

Akylina | 80 comments It's "Nami no Tou" (波の塔)but I guess it hasn't been translated to English yet?

Thank you, Akylina. That’s a shame.
