There seems to be a sense of divine magic in the very atmosphere, through all the luminous day, brooding over the vapoury land, over the ghostly blue of the flood--a sense of Shinto. With my fancy full of the legends of the Kojiki, the rhythmic chant of the engines comes to my ears as the rhythm of a Shinto ritual mingled with the names of gods.

About the author (2004)

Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) was one of the first great interpreters of things Japanese for Western readers. His keen intellect, poetic imagination, and clear style have ensured him a devoted readership, among both foreigners and Japanese, for almost a century.
