Japan Experiences

by Sir Hugh Cortazzi (Ed),
100 different accounts of life in post-war Japan
The Japan Society/Global Oriental, 2001
ISBN 1-903350-04-2 – 633pp – Illus.

This unique volume, marking the 110th anniversary of The Japan Society and compiled and edited by former chairman Hugh Cortazzi, aims at capturing the impressions and experiences British people have had of Japan. By collecting sketches, vignettes and reminiscences covering the half century since the end of the Pacific War, Cortazzi seeks to offer the reader a fascinating and remarkable collection of personal experiences across a wide and varied spectrum. Unlike the ‘Britain & Japan: Biographical Portraits’ series which aims at providing a comprehensive biographical account of key individuals, Japan Experiences is more personal in its elucidation. As Hugh Cortazzi himself highlights, “if impressions of those years are not recorded now they may never be as memories fade and people pass on.”
