    My friend, young Glaswegian in rural Japan, was teaching English as a foreign language every Tuesday evening to a small group of adults Scrabbling around for a topic to discuss in English, he settled on the experience of burakumin At the start of the class, he wrote the word across the blackboard and there was shock, there was horror, there was one old woman getting up to erase it All of the students refused to discuss burakumin.When he told the story to the other foreigners, we all rolle My friend, young Glaswegian in rural Japan, was teaching English as a foreign language every Tuesday evening to a small group of adults Scrabbling around for a topic to discuss in English, he settled on the experience of burakumin At the start of the class, he wrote the word across the blackboard and there was shock, there was horror, there was one old woman getting up to erase it All of the students refused to discuss burakumin.When he told the story to the other foreigners, we all rolled our eyes at another example of Japanese people finding an issue to avoid being frank about But then a chap from Florida piped up But if it was the South of the States, and a naive young Japanese guy opened his adult education class by writing the N word across the blackboard Well, he had a point.Back to The River with No Bridge I thought it was going to be Japan s To Kill a Mockingbird but it s a bit too plodding and unlovely, really

    The story in this book was very engaging and left me wishing I could read the original in its original language So much is lost in translation, and if the translation left me wondering every time I read it, I wonder what the original would have invoked I was saddened to learn that out of the seven volumes that Sue Sumii wrote, only this first volume has been translated into English The characters, especially Koji, were easy to identify with and well rounded The issues of discrimination posed The story in this book was very engaging and left me wishing I could read the original in its original language So much is lost in translation, and if the translation left me wondering every time I read it, I wonder what the original would have invoked I was saddened to learn that out of the seven volumes that Sue Sumii wrote, only this first volume has been translated into English The characters, especially Koji, were easy to identify with and well rounded The issues of discrimination posed by the book, which took place at the beginning of the 20th century, are issues still felt today It has been a while since I have read something so compelling that I couldn t wait to be able to read

    Un affresco interessante della realt degli eta , gli intoccabili del Giappone, all inizio del 900 visto attraverso gli occhi di un bambino Non ci vengono risparmiati momenti tragici e alcuni passaggi hanno una grandissima forza Peccato per la lentezza della narrazione, che rende la lettura un po difficile.

    A bit heavy on emphasizing the mistreatment of the eta it read a bit like a moral lesson , but still very compelling I loved Seitaro and Koji, and their grandmother
