"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things

that you didn't do than by the ones you did.

So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover.”

 — Mark Twain






A Fool's Return: Wandering Japan's Coastal Route in Search of Beauty

By William de Lange

“When I walked into the ofice on Monday morning I knew my reputation was in shatters.”

Walking Japan’s coastal route in search of beauty, William de Lange encounters a string of local characters. Recording their stories, he braids a travelogue deftly interwoven with his own experiences since he first set foot in Japan some thirty years ago.

A sequel to A Fool’s Journey, A Fool’s Return is an exploration of one of Japan’s perhaps less scenic but certainly most historic routes. Above all, it is a gaijin ’s exploration of his relationship with a country that continues to defy definition.
