This is the perfect book for those who want to immerse yourself in Japanese history and culture, and do not know where nachat.Zdes has it all - tradition and resistance to Western trends, especially the perception of life, the amazing beauty of landscapes, features of life and, most importantly, people , thoughts and actions which are sometimes baffled "advanced" Europeans.Rare case where female characters are written just perfect, true.And an overwhelming sense of self-worth, in whatever bizarre as it is not expressed.Because the novel covers a significant historical period (almost a hundred years old), you can trace the development of three generations of Matani, inscribed in the cultural and social realities of Japan in those years, subordinate to these changes.This is one of the few novels of recent years, an adaptation that I have looked with great pleasure.

Get the perfect upbringing and penetrated Khan traditions rebel Fumio and regenerating lost generation Hanako - they seemed to twist in the kaleidoscope of life with their own country's thread, the historical cycle, clearly demonstrating that sooner or later return to normal.It is not for a moment think that the author is a little contrived life of the main characters for the story needs, vsezdes extremely lively and believable.
