Descrizione

HAIKU DREAMING by JULIAN BOUND

 

A poetic journey through the Japanese cities of:

 

Tokyo Osaka Kyoto Hiroshima

 

From the author of 'The Geisha and The Monk', and National Geographic contributor and award winning documentary photographer Julian Bound.

 

Using the traditional style of Haiku poetry, 'Haiku Dreaming' presents the uniqueness of each city happened upon, evoking the emotional sensibilities found within the diversity of a society living hand in hand with both ancient and ultramodern cultures.

 

This combination of the traditional and the new can be experienced within in the delights of Tokyo's metropolis of neon light, Osaka's ornate castles, Kyoto's historical shrines, and Hiroshima's charm of Torii gated coastlines, Zen temple and secluded city gardens.
