Mistress Oriku: Stories from a Tokyo Teahouse
Sensitive, compassionate and indomitable, Mistress Oriku has abandoned the pleasure trades of Meiji-era Tokyo to run an elegant teahouse on the city's outskirts. Despite her hopes for a quieter, less hectic life, she finds she can't escape her involvement in the city's creative, intellectual, and political circles.
Now available in English for the first time, Japan's beloved Mistress Oriku is filled with clear-eyed nostalgia for the vanished, and entirely captivating, world of old Tokyo.
