Lots of detail about Japanese life around the time of the opening up of Japan to the West. Also very good descriptions and explanations of the various tea ceremonies practiced.
I enjoyed the theme of this book, especially with the Japanese words blended into the English text. Unfortunately, I didn't really like the writing style, with elements not being very well-developed and just haphazardly thrown in here and there. The end was especially sudden, and the epilogue was not really believable and was pretty ridiculous really.
