Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0905173805, Paperback)A true story set in Meiji-era Japan, which combines the visual appeal of manga with a well-researched historical account. A foreign couple travels throughout Japan, seeing many interesting aspects of life - like beautiful girls in Kyoto and a parade for the Emperor in Yokohama. They come across fascinating aspects of Japanese history, like the 47 Ronin, who committed suicide after avenging their dead Samurai master. Mizuki's artwork on this book reaches a new level of beauty and sophistication.
