Chapter Summary

Of many of the women travellers who have published accounts of their journeys very little is known of their personal lives other than that which is revealed in their narratives. Annie Brassey's life is relatively well documented, not only through the details in her five travel books, but also through the public life of her husband. On 1 July 1876, Annie Brassey began an eleven-month circumnavigation of the globe. During her three weeks in Japan, Mrs Brassey's travels encompassed many of the destinations which were to become fixtures on travel itineries into the twentieth century and beyond. From the mid-1870s, the numbers of leisure travellers to Japan increased due, in part, to the increased accessibility through advances in sea and land transport, and the opening of the interior which greatly increased travel options.
