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( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new contribution to Japanese Imperial history in the twentieth century offers important insights into the controversial, high-profile lives of Prince and Princess Chichibu, both before and after the Pacific War. Their lives were lived both above and below 'the clouds' (of 'imperial heaven'), 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, including the Prince's own writings which have recently become available. Also included for the first time in English (translated by the author) are most of Princess Chichibu's collection of poems, which formed part of her original memoir." --Book Jacket

The girl with white flag : an inspiring tale of love and courage in war time by Tomiko Higa( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Separated from her family in the confusion and horror of World War II, seven-year-old Tomiko Higa struggles to survive on the battlefield of Okinawa, Japan. There, as some of the fiercest fighting of the war rages around her, she must live alone, with nothing to fall back on but her own wits and daring. Fleeing from encroaching enemy forces, searching desperately for her lost sisters, taking scraps of food from the knapsacks of dead soldiers, risking death at every turn, Tomiko somehow finds the strength and courage to survive. Many years later she decided to tell this story. Originally intended for juvenile readers, it is sure to move adults as well, because it is such a vivid portrait of the unintended civilian casualties of any war

The narrow road to the Deep North : and other travel sketches by Bashō Matsuo( Book )

18 editions published between 1980 and 2006 in English and Japanese and held by 310 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
The silver drum : a Japanese imperial memoir by Chichibu no Miya Setsuko( Book )

5 editions published between 1966 and 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

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. This unusual school had old railroad cars for classrooms, and it was run by an extraordinary man-its founder and headmaster, Sosaku Kobayashi-who was a firm believer in freedom of expression and activity. In real life, the Totto-chan of the book has become one of Japan's most popular television personalities-Tetsuko Kuroyanagi. She attributes her success in life to this wonderful school and its headmaster. The charm of this account has won t

Kamakura : fact & legend by Iso Mutsu( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kamakura: Fact and Legend, has long been the definitive work on Kamakura. This classic book is the lifetime achievement of Countess Iso Mutsu (née 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. Iso Mutsu was one of the first to discover that much of the magic of Kamakura today lies in fascinating historical events of the past, among them: the brilliant conquests of Minamoto no Yoritomo, the defiant dance of Shizuka Gozen at Hachiman Shrine, a
