The narrow road to Oku by Bashō Matsuo( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the account which he named The Narrow Road to Oku, Basho makes a journey lasting 150 days, in which he travels, on foot, a distance of 600 ri. This was three hundred years ago, when the average distance covered by travelers was apparently 9 ri per day, so it is clear that Basho, who was forty years old at the time, possessed a remarkably sturdy pair of walking legs. Nowadays with the development of all sorts of means of transportation, travel l is guaranteed to be pleasant and convenient in every respect, so it's almost impossible for us to imagine the kind of journey Basho undertook, "drifting with the clouds and streams," and "lodging under trees and on bare rocks." This translation is illustrated with Mayaski's works produced for the exhibition marking the thirtieth anniversary of his career as an artist with the Narrow road to Oku as the theme

Highly-skilled young men who hold degreesin judo?and flower arrangement.? The "man in the moon"?who isn't a manat all, but a rabbit.? Charming hotels with no public dining roomsand no private baths.?

The life of an amorous man by Saikaku Ihara( Book )

8 editions published between 1964 and 2002 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Life of an Amorous Man depicts the pursuits and follies of the most glorious age of old Japan, when the new bourgeoisie, unfettered by the societal constraints of the traditional aristocracy, indulged in the free and easy life of Japan's celebrated pleasure houses. The hero of this novel is a composite of the many daijin (men of wealth) who spent their time in these flourishing establishments. The novel follows the hero, Yonosuke, or "Man of the World," from precocious childhood to the close of his amatory career. Along the way, Saikaku exploits the full gamut of sexual indulgence, always with frankness, often with humor, and occasionally with pathos - chronicling the erotic escapades of his hero and providing vivid character sketches of the women (and sometimes men) with whom Yonosuke dallied."--BOOK JACKET
