About the book (from Preface):

These notes and impressions are published in the hope that they will recall pleasant days to those who have been around the world and through Japan, that they will prepare those who are about to make a similar tour for some of its inevitable disappointments as well as enjoyments, and that they will prove not altogether uninteresting to those who have neither been nor intend to be globe-trotters.
