Tales of Old Japanese (Review)

Tales of Old Japanese by Hugh Ashton
Reviewed by Alex Canton-Dutari
The five short stories that appear in this book take us along a cultural development journey from the pre- World War II Japan to the Japan of today. Nevertheless, the air of simplicity of former days remains.
My favourite story is "The Old House." It summarizes all of the above, including a bit of the paranormal, which I enjoy.
By the way, I doubt that young adults or late-teenagers will be interested in this well-written work. It takes maturity to relate to it, and I am so glad for this.
