Kipling visited Japan in 1889 and 1892. No other leading English literary figure of his day spent so long in that country or wrote so fully about it.

First published in 1988, this title is part of the Bloomsbury Academic Collections series

9 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a fascinating account of the fifteen years spent in Japan by William Willis, a British medical pioneer. Quite apart from the importance of his reports on medical practice and the spread of Western medicine, Dr Willis, who worked with the British Legation until 1868, was also a notable eye-witness to many historic occasions. Dr Willis's letters to his family in Ireland are quoted extensively. First published in 1985, this title is part of the Bloomsbury Academic Collections series."--Bloomsbury Publishing
