This review is from: Fujisan (Paperback)
Most of the reviewers of this book seem to be familiar with Japan or with Japanese culture in some way. As I am not, I found that I had no empathy with the characters and found the stories a little disturbing. I could not get absorbed in them and skimmed them for the most part. However, I can appreciate the symbolic and actual links with Mount Fuji, and thought the writing style was good. I didn't have a problem with the translation.
