Japan Experiences. Fifty Years, One Hundred Views

Japan Experiences. Fifty Years, One Hundred Views
By Sir Hugh Cortazzi
The Japan Society and Global Oriental (2001)
ISBN-10: 1903350042

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.”
