2.   Bosworth, Illustrated by: Matsuoka, Jack
Ginza Go, Papa-san
Publisher: Charles E. Tuttle Company , , 1956 Rutland, VT
Book. Book condition: Good. No Dust Jacket. Audio Book (CD) "Ginza Go, Papa-san grew out of a witty essay in the Saturday Evening Post and is a book whose charm and homor is so singular that it is best explained by a synopsis of a few of the sixteen chapters: "Let's All Climb Fuji-san, in which a middle-aged man (only the moustache is old) forms the Allan R. Bosworth Memorial Expedition and it's proven that one can climb 1, 600 feet on three bottles of bourbon, concluding with 'Bee-hind justa rittle hurt.' "The Templed Hills of Koya-san, wherein Papa-san visit's the famous Buddhist retreat located on Mt. Koya and discovers that true religion neither knows nor acknowledges any racial barriers and that a love of humanity whether expressed in English or Japanese is a refreshing discovery. "Sashimi! O-sushi! Raw, Raw, Raw! In which Papa-san fights with the raw dishes served at a Japanese meal and discovers that some are so raw that they aren't even dead. Concluding with a sensational battle with the ollest oddity of all raw Japanese delicacies--the octopus. "Some Elder Literary Gentlemen, wherein the opinions on Japan of Hearn, Paris, and Very Proper Englishmen are seen in retrospect and it is proposed that either too much or too little affection for people hampers understanding. "Driving is Justa Little Different, in which Papa-san looks up some driving rules at the Tokyo Central Police Station sees: 'When a passenger of and the foot heave in sight, tootle the horn. Trumpet at him. Melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your way tootle him with vigor'. "Through his wit, humor, and love of people, Allan R. Bosworth has captured a quality of profound understanding seldom found in the more learned and academic works on the Japanese. A deep and abiding affection for the people of Japan has neither dulled his keen wit nor affected his objectivity. In Ginza Go, Papa-san he has succeeded in achieving a delicate balance between humor and understanding that makes light, informative, and poignant reading." Nicely illustrated. 208 pages.
