Synopsis:

"An elegiac prose celebration . . . a classic in its genre."—Publishers Weekly

In this acclaimed travel memoir, Donald Richie paints a memorable portrait of the island-studded Inland Sea. His existential ruminations on food, culture, and love and his brilliant descriptions of life and landscape are a window into an Old Japan that has now nearly vanished. Included are the twenty black and white photographs by Yoichi Midorikawa that accompanied the original 1971 edition.

Donald Richie (1924–2013) was an internationally recognized expert on Japanese culture and film.

Yoichi Midorikawa (1915–2001) was one of Japan's foremost nature photographers.

From the Back Cover: Long considered a masterpiece of travel writing, Donald Richie's The Inland Sea is the journal-like record of a trip to the seafaring communities of central Japan. Aware of his foreignness, Richie delights in details and muses at length on food, romance, work, and human foibles. This new edition of The Inland Sea contains an introduction by Pico Iyer, a new afterword by the author, a map, and 18 images from the award-winning Inland Sea documentary. Richie wrote The Inland Sea some thirty years ago, but its themes of travel and the Outsider still endure, while its view of a Japan now nearly lost is both sad and indelible.

Book Description John Weatherhill, Tokyo, 1971. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. A near Fine unmarked copy with no inscriptions with pictorial cloth boards. There is only minor dust marking to top edge and minor marks to fore edge. Internally very clean, tight and unmarked. Dustjacket is also near Fine and is not price clipped. 290 pages. 20 photographs by Yoichi Midorikawa. 1 fold out map. The Inland Sea is much more than a travel book. True, it is an account of a real journey through Japan's beautiful Seto Naikai, that landlocked, island studded sea that is perhaps the only remaining 'real Japan'. But it goes far beyond this. It is also a moving description of the islands and their people, of their history and folklore. The book has become a classic and is regarded as one of the finest travel memoirs. Donald Richie (1924-2013) was an American born writer who became an expert on Japan, where he lived. **** SCARCE TO FIND IN SUCH A GOOD CONDITION **** Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
