Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a conversation between the author and a lad in a pretty village on the road from Kuwana, the north-western port of the Bay of lse, to Ootsu, at the south-western extremity of Lake Biwa, an ancient thoroughfare anybody may easily find upon a good-sized map of Japan. The conversation takes place while the author was travelling toward Sakanoshita for holidays. The character of the landscapes in the Sakanoshita seems to be like that of the inhabitants. Sakanoshita represents all that is most bewitching in Japanese life. It has no startling accessories, like the torrents at Nikkuo one of which plunges from a lofty lake over a precipice one-seventh of a mile in height and is guarded by no Vulcan's giants, like those which hover about Hakone; but it is crowded with natural fascinations, which, if not altogether so stately, are far more captivating.

Keywords: Kuwana; Lake Biwa; Ootsu; Sakano-Shita
