Handbook for Travellers in Japan – Including the Whole Empire from Yezo to Formosa — 2 Comments

  1. I’m old enough to remember when Taiwan was called Formosa, but I didn’t realize it was ever part of the Japanese Empire. So I learned something just from the title!

  2. I didn’t realize that either. Or that Hokkaido was once called Yezo. Every page in that book has really interesting information on it. I’ve even found Japanese grammatical forms that have disappeared.
