I remember the television documentary of the early 90s "Journey to a lost Japan" featuring Lesley Downer, one of the best documentaries I have seen. Unfortunately it seems it is not available on DVD but I was delighted to find this book in which the author tells basically the same story.

A lovely companion book to "Japanese Inn" 20 April 2014
By Clrbrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Young woman, Poet
We three walked the Narrow Road
Together alone.

I loved the contrasts in this book. The then and the "now", the history of Japan and the 1989 reality, the vision through the womans' eyes and those of the famous male poet from his journal and his haiku. I read it fairly voraciously and came away feeling that I have visited the country and have learned something about Japan, Basho and haiku.
