About this Item

*first printing (full-#-line)* Pristine hardback, whistle-clean and unmarked inside and out, stiff, square. Dust jacket is shiny and has minor flaws; creases on the inside flap, edge-wear on the head and foot of spine ,near fine condition and price-intact ($17.95). "Statler has created a strangely beautiful book that unlike most works on Japan, succeeds in conveying intact not only a great deal of its history but, most important, the mood of that land. The result is sheer delight. "Japanese Inn" is the work of a master craftsman; it is so well conceived that the narrative moves from past to present in the same paragraph without the slightest confusion to the reader; it is so well written that only in retrospect is one aware of its remarkable flawless style. Through the author's particular magic, the stories unfold as one narrative, as beautifully and memorably as the unrolling of a long Japanese scroll." -- Curt Gentry, S. F. Sunday Chronicle.

About this title


From the author: My interest in the Pilgrimage to the Eighty-eight Sacred Places of Shikoku dates from my first visit to Shikoku, in 1961. I first performed the 1000-mile circular pilgrimage in 1968. From 1969-1971 I lived on Shikoku in the city of Matsuyama in order to study and perform the pilgrimage, and in 1971 made the entire pilgrimage again. In 1973 I was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship which permitted me to undertake a book about the pilgrimage. Japanese Pilgrimage was published in May 1983 by William Morrow & Company.

During the Japanese Academic year 1980-81, I was a visiting professor at Kobe College (Kobe Jogakuin), the old and prestigious women's college now located in Nishinomiya. During this year in Japan I worked with a Matsuyama film maker, Ueda Masakazu, to make an 8-mm film about the pilgrimage; the film was first shown at the 1983 Annual Meeting of the Association for Asian Studies in San Francisco."
