The silver drum : a Japanese imperial memoir by Chichibu no Miya Setsuko( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a Japanese princess. It is the first autobiography by a member of the Japanese Imperial Family to be published in English. Her name was Setsuko, Princess Chichibu, who was born in Walton-on-Thames, England, in 1909, was educated at the Peeresses' School for Girls, Tokyo, and the Friends School, Washington, and was then invited to marry Prince Chichibu, younger brother of Emperor Hirohito and therefore next in line to the throne. She accepted, and although from a distinguished noble family in western Japan - the Matsudairas - she was technically a commoner because her father had earlier renounced his title and so she had to be 'adopted' by the Imperial Family. The marriage duly took place in September 1928. She died at the age of 85 in August 1995, the Prince having died prematurely of tuberculosis some forty years earlier

Prince and Princess Chichibu : two lives lived above and below the clouds : including a complete translation of Setsuko, Princess Chichibu's memoir The silver drum by Chichibu no Miya Setsuko( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers invaluable new insights into the controversial lives and history of Prince and Princess Chichibu - two high-profile members of the Japanese imperial family, both before and after the Pacific War. Their lives were lived both above and below "the clouds", with the princess a commoner in an arranged marriage and the popular "sporting prince", dogged by ill health and his association with the Japanese Imperial Army. At the heart of the book is a complete translation of Princess Chichibu's original autobiography, first published in a shorter, condensed version in 1996 under the title The Silver Drum, together with a short biography of Prince Chichibu supported by important new data on his role in the war years, thanks to recent access to new studies as well as the prince's own writings. Also included for the first time is a translation of most of Princess Chichibu's collection of poems which formed part of the original memoir

"This engaging series of childhood recollections tells about an ideal school in Tokyo during World War II that combined learning with fun, freedom, and love.

In real life, the Totto-chan of the book has become one of Japan's most popular television personalities-Tetsuko Kuroyanagi.
