  • Curator's comments

    By 1973 Kitai was fed up with the endless revolution. He turned to the countryside for a sense of peace and genuineness. Travelling to the remote regions of Honshu, Kitai understood that the scenes he witnessed were bound to disappear. The resulting work won him the 1st Kimura Ihei Prize in 1976. An expanded version of this volume was published by Tankosha under the same title in 1980. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
