Hints and Echoes of Japanese Inner Life

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Kokoro: Hints and Echoes of Japanese Inner Life, was first published in 1896 at a time when Japan was largely unknown to the Western world. Kokoro (心) which translates as ‘heart’ in English offers the reader the first glimpses into pre-industrial and Meji era Japan. Today the works of Lafcadio Hearn are mostly forgotten in the West and are fading from the memories of the Japanese.

This edition of Kokoro: Hints and Echoes of Japanese Inner Life has been taken from the original edition of 1896. The copy took 18 months to prepare and was carefully cross-referenced with three other early editions. 

The book also features Japanese calligraphy that was commissioned by Wabi Sabi Press and written by a qualified Japanese calligraphy (Shodo - 書道) artist living in Kyushu, Japan where Lafcadio Hearn lived from 1891 - 1894.
