A journey to the Asian continent, in a work completely written in Japanese. The copy, with a paperback binding and a beautifully coloured cover illustration, contains illustrations in black and white engravings. For the more curious, the Buddhist term Ukiyo served to describe the transitoriness of human life before, in the Edo period, between the 17th and 18th centuries, becoming the term for the search for ephemeral pleasures in an exciting and sensual world. Literally translated, it means "floating world", and spreads across various arts such as "ukiyo-e" painting and "ukiyo-zôshi" literature.
