Insightful and impressive. Helpful to IB students who wish to succeed in their IB courses, as well as in life, in general. Teachers need to read the book with an open mind and with a humble heart. We all learn from each other in the IB, regardless of the results of the external exams.
Every IB school library must have this book!

Not as exciting nor compelling as Tales of the Otori, but an interesting read nonetheless. Japan in the 1800s is on the verge of change. It affects everyone and everything in varying degrees and these are all narrated through the eyes of the storyteller. He observes and explores the lives of the people around him through Japanese culture and art.
