More > found to number scarcely a score. This fact is due to the immense difficulty of perceiving and comprehending what underlies the surface of Japanese life. No work fully interpreting that life, — no work picturing Japan within and without, historically and socially, psychologically and ethically, — can be written for at least another fifty years. So vast and intricate the subject that the united labour of a generation of scholars could not exhaust it, and so difficult that the number of scholars willing to devote their time to it must always be small...."< Less

We went from the UK, as part of an Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation (EEFIT) mission, to study recovery after the 2011 Tohoku tsunami. This was a major disaster for Japan. For the country... More > most prepared for earthquakes this was a shocking event that will take years and trillions of dollars to repair. Fifteen months after the disaster, when we made our field trip, recovery was already underway. New embankments were being constructed along the coast of the Sendai plain in Miyage Province and debris had been collected into huge sorted piles. But further north, in Iwate Province a debate was raging between the safety conscious who wanted to construct high embankments and those who wanted to maintain their intimate contact with the shore and sea. I went to Kobe and Kyoto to visit engineers in earthquake institutes. I went site seeing and was beguiled by Japanese architecture and landscape.< Less

Short Journeys: Japan By Andrew Boland

With this... More > book I try to include all the places I have visited in Japan in a useful book full of tips and anecdotes. Japan is a wonderful country full of culture, friendly people, mountains, beaches, amazing cities. It is a country that has seen devastation from nuclear bombs and wars, through to earthquakes and tsunamis and still has a smile. I include a special chapter about Iwate Prefecture and hope that people reading this book and heading to Japan will consider heading there as it moves forward from that day in 2011, seemingly in the past but still very much in the minds of those who live here. Japan is brimming with life and warmth and its own uniqueness. Take a read, and see what it’s all about. Includes over 60 photos taken by the author.< Less
