4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is a remarkable 'fairy' story in so many respects, sadly set in the wrong epoch. Much more could have been said; and yet there is much that need not be said. There is certainly a great deal 'between the lines'. Both the Prince (who spent some time studying in London and Oxford) and Princess had especially close links with England and the United States.

This book is the lifetime achievement of Countess Iso Mutsu(nee Gertrude Ethel Passingham) a talented, inquisitive Englishwoman who against all odds married a Japanese diplomat at the turn of the century, and so came to live most of her life in this beautiful city. Kamakura: Fact and Legend, the only book that Iso Mutsu wrote, is a testament to the devotion with which she succeeded in unlocking Kamakura's secrets for the outside world. The inspiration and reference for later works on Kamakura, this c
