"The Inland Sea still gleams with the freshness of discovery. Years ago it was often called one of the great travel books, and so it seems today."--The National Post "A welcome reissue of the book Richie published in 1971, which has been celebrated as a classic in travel literature."--Thomas BeVier, Foreword Reviews Winter 2016 Issue "Richie's book, on its surface a travel account, is a beautiful reflection on all things Japanese by one of the country's most acute observers. Anyone with an interest in Japan would enjoy this book, and those lucky enough to be on a voyage through the Inland Sea even more so."--Longitude "A legendary book in the Japan field. The newest edition by Stone Bridge Press deserves a place of honor on your bookshelf--and in your mind."--Alexis Agliano Sanborn, JQ Magazine
