Hitching Rides with Buddha
by Will Ferguson
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 304 PAGES
As irreverent as ever, Will Ferguson tracks cherry blossoms from Kagoshima to Rishiri Island in this rollicking report from the cultural frontlines in Japan. Fall foliage is nothing compared to the mania experienced in Japan over Cherry Blossom Viewing. It's got it's own name (hanami) and it is, among other things, a good excuse to loiter (in parks, temples, cemeteries) and get roaring drunk. Ferguson spent five years living in Japan.
