A book of landscape/townscape photography combined with poetry. This work had originally been serialized by Chuo Koronsha in 31 issues between 1967 and 1971. Hamaya came away from his experiences of the 1960 'uprising' as a disillusioned man. "I avoided any place that 'smelled' of people. I deliberately separated everything that was not nature from nature; and it could be said that this process began with my turning away from people. Now, having finished my compilation of the 'Landscapes of Japan', what I am thinking about is Man." No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
