    The Blue-Eyed Tarokaja
    by Donald Keene, J. Thomas Rimer (Editor)
    Unlike many American commentators on Japan, Donald Keene has not only lived much of his life there but become an eminent literary scholar himself in Japanese. This collection of essays reveals both Keene's vast erudition and his keen insight into Japanese culture and literature. The essay on "The Tale of Genji" alone makes this an important book.

    Kyoto: Seven Paths to the Heart of the City
    Kyoto: Seven Paths to the Heart of the City
    by Diane Durston, Katsuhiko Mizuno
    Book Description
    What better way to see Kyoto than at dawn, when the back streets and alleys of this 1,200-year-old city are still under the spell of the past? Old folks fuss about with their bonsai and laundry poles, pausing to chat on their way to the neighborhood shrine with flowers and morning prayers. Knock-kneed white egrets stalk the stream beds for breakfast, and the giant bronze temple bells awaken the former capital of Japan every morning as they have done for centuries. 

    Through wars, fires, famines, tyrants, and now rapid modernization, the old neighborhoods of Kyoto are the places where the customs and traditions of this fascinating city, with its confusing blend of old and new, have managed to survive. 

    American writer and former Kyoto resident Diane Durston introduces seven must-see precincts of this ancient capital city, including four Historic Preservation Districts. Among them are the world-famous geisha quarter, the kimono textile neighborhoods, the sake-brewing area of Fushimi, and the tea-growing region of Uji. Durston weaves together local lore and historical sites to create a panoply of provocative walking tours that take the reader back in time to the elegance of earlier days. 

    Accompanying each section is a full-color map and the fine photography of Katsuhiko Mizuno, a Kyoto native and one of the city's most famous photographers. Sections highlighting Kyoto crafts, cuisine, festivals, and tourist essentials round out this attractive volume, making it the perfect introduction -- and guide -- to one of the world's most evocative cities. 

    Features 

    * Photographs by one of Kyoto's most renowned photographers
    * Locations of the most important Historic Preservations Districts
    * Detailed maps and suggested routes
    * Scenic and little-known walking paths
    * Completely revised and updated information
