Indulge into Japan: SAMURAI ROAD by Lawrence Winkler

.

.
Japan is an archipelago of puzzlement.  From the sands that forged their swords and serenity, they traveled a SAMURAI ROAD of temples and shrines, feudal fortresses, and flowing mountain streams of wasabi.  On sashimi and soy sauce, and green tea over rice, they lived a thousand years of pathos, under cherry blossoms and ephemeral moonlight, in Zen gardens and futon dreams. It was all so perfect…

About the Author:

As a medical professor, Lawrence Winkler never guessed that casual backyard observation would become a catalogue, and then an anthem, and then a lyrical chronicle of the science and poetry of nature.  He landed on a world of narrative non-fiction writing, from which there was no escape. Such sweet captivity.
His other passions include viticulture, travel, gardening, mushroom foraging, music, Japanese art, and efforts at local environmental stewardship. We protect what we love.
For the last twenty-seven years, he and his wife, Robyn, have joyously cultivated their small acreage on Vancouver Island.
Follow his blog and website, and find many more books he wrote about other parts of the world he travelled.  http://www.lawrencewinkler.com/#!blogger-feed/cibz
