Book Summary

This book contains English translations of the most popular poems from among the “Red version” and the “Blue version” of “Treasure Hunt – Poems and Photos,” both of which were published in February. The appendix at the end of the book introduces “Yūji's treasure hunting spots,” which are all areas that were indispensable on this journey of self-exploration. I truly hope that all of those who visit Japan for work or sight-seeing will, by all means, visit these places at least once and experience Japan's daily routine."
