    Excellent It s funny how Kawabata can drone on about cherry blossoms and camphor trees and local Kyoto festivals and yet keep one reading A large part of the fascination is looking into this foreign world that one s never known before The customs, traditional s seemingly under siege by callous modernity His touch is so light The emotional depths Kawabata plumbs with just the tiniest bits of dialogue this concision most of all holds us in thrall The is the story of an abandoned child, Chieko, who is found and raised by kind Kyoto shopkeepers, and her eventual reconnection by chance with her twin sister, Naeko, in post occupation Japan Apparently twins were once considered inauspicious in Japan Her foster parents suffer terrible guilt because Chieko is such a fine, solicitous child They imagine they ve inflicted horrible suffering on the unknown parents when, in fact, either because of poverty...

    The sting of the needle was lost in the delicate crimson stream Not a wince or a slight whimper The strange words bounced in my ears resembling songs of exasperated crickets The harshness of the sun did not bother my skin any, neither the rain puddles that ruined my shoes Not a drop of tear, not a speck of anger Could this happening so soon The one thing I feared the most Did Kawabata finally overwhelm me Did the silence consume me like a ravenous shokujinki As I walked home, the frogs happily croaked on the walls of a nearby pond even as heated clouds swarmed the sky I ran my tears competing with the fluttering of sparrows Windows were being angrily locked, doors shut with a thunderous bang Those bell crickets These lucky insects How will I ever isolate myself from this vulgar world Why couldn t I be those violets who grew in the hollow spaces of the maple trees, priding in their blooming beauty amid the vulgarity of the overgrown moss Would my carefree life just be a beautiful illusion existing in my heart Has the opening of the lid brought an end to my enchanted world When will silence finally annihilate my aching memories Will it be possible to stand tall and straight like those majestic cedars even when its branches are cut to build tea rooms Will a man ever cease from being an emotional cre...

    Nobel Prize winner Kawabata draws a beautiful period piece about Kyoto and the geisha period I have been lucky enough to have been to Kyoto once and seen geishas rare these days taking a promenade, not unlike in this wonderful book SOOO much better than the Golding Geisha book

    Edit I suck I didn t say why I loved this book I loved the sweetness before the sadness It was like when you re in love before the shit flies Sitting in groves and watching growth any other nature nerds , the trying to get to know someone whom you suspect is quite beautiful The love ends and I was all alone It s a heartbreaker it is My broken heart tends to wallow and go into deny deny deny And then it s the go back and over all the details to prove it ever really happened I love you, Kawabata Again, what is it with the traditional talk I ve repeatedly seen this label applied to Yasanuri Kawabata s works Another goodreader uses their shelf mainstream I don t think I like this easiness at all Maybe because I don t really understand what it means Traditional Japanese way of life Not like Haruki Murakami Anyway, I think it is fucked up all the same I ve also read in various places including goodreads that this is not a good translation It s pretty obvious by the touchy translator s note in the beginning there s a new one done in 2005 updating the 1987 English translation I wanted to tell him to chill Yeah I would liken it to watching a subtitled movie You KNOW the English words on your screen couldn t possibly...

    Edited 13 01 2018 rating has been upgraded from 3.5 to 5 stars.You have to understand this I am a person who has little to none tolerance for love triangles So if a novel about the love triangles among two men and one woman can hold my interest from start to end, it has to have something good in it.It is the second time I read The Old Capital by Yasunari Kawabata, it is one of the novels which gained the novelist his Noble Prize This re reading helps me to appreciate the moving grace in Mr Kawabata s writing, plus this time the main characters especially Chieko s three suitors really do grow on me than before.To sum it up, this is a novella worthy of a revisit.The story itself Chieko s family runs a wholesale store in Kyoto She is the only child in the household and her parents had long confessed to her that she was their adopted child.Being concerned over her mysterious parentage and the unknown identity of her birth parents bloodline and breeding has always been a great concern when marriage is concerned in Japan , Chieko has kept her distance with her suitors her childhood best friend and a young man from a family of traditional weavers.Meanwhile, Chieko s foster father Takichiro is struggling to come up with new design for new kimono s patterns Outside of new kimono s patterns, he is also concerned with his business which isn t performing...

    I will tell you why I really liked this book, nothing It captures traditional Japanese culture wonderfully Central to Japanese life and culture is the importance of beauty I am referring to the value of weaving a beautiful cloth, the value of looking carefully at a tree or a leaf or a stone and capturing the essence of the beauty that object emanates For me Japanese art removes all the unnecessary it rips away what is superficial and leaves you with the bare essential What is beauty You understand that when you look at Japanese art in all its different forms cloth, gardens, ceremonies, pottery and good writing such as this.I don t understand everything in this book That is because I do not understand all aspects of Japanese culture The you understand their culture and all that makes their culture what it is traditions, feasts, national shrines, customs and beliefs the you will appreciate the book You do have to be curious about the Japanese way of thinking You have to see the beauty of ripping away the excess to look...

    Second Review I simply reread this fine novel by Yasunari Kawabata for two reasons, that is, 1 to find if I could enjoy reading it for the second time and to what extent 2 to see if there is some fidelity as compared with its YouTube counterpart entitled Twin Sisters of Kyoto Koto 1963 its website has been attached in No 1 End Notes First Review As for 1 , I still found it irresistibly readable and went further in detail, for instance, from Takichiro s explanation to Chieko Chieko, we ve raised you since you were a nursing baby You were the sweetest child anyone could hope for We would treat that girl as fairly as possible If she looks like you, she s surely a good girl Bring her here Twenty years ago twins weren t accepted, but now it s nothing, her father said p 148 I mean the last sentence in which it might have been overlooked if it s read hurriedly therefore, we should keep its background s context in mind, that is, it was a sort of taboo in not accepting twins twenty years ago but now meaning the time her father s telling Chieko it s acceptable.Note I would write on 2 soon To continue .First Review One of the best by Yasunari Kawabata, the first Japanese recipient of the Nobel Prize in literature in 1968 Cited as one of his three works by the Oslo committee, it has been accompanied by Snow Country, and Thousand Cranes as mentioned in the synopsis by its title and front page cover above.A bit busy, therefore, I would find time to say...

    Kawabata published this short novel in 1962, just six years before receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature Situated in post World War II Kyoto, it tells the story of Chieko, the foundling daughter of a wholesale fabric dealer and his wife who run a business in decline Devoted to her adoptive parents, Chieko wrestles with questions about her parents of origin, about marriage, about relationships, finally meeting the girl who is her twin sister.The novel explores issues of tradition and modernity, of a country trying to find its way and develop new models of living while honoring its past, and of the dialectic of old and new Kawabata s spare but lovely style evokes rather than explicates, suggests rather than states, and is continually open ended The result is both poignant and beautiful, unsettling and paradoxically peaceful, seldom settling for definitive answers.On a broader dimension and fundamentally Kawabata explores the Japanese esthetic of wabi sabi, that difficult to pin down concept, rooted in Buddhist thought, of incompleteness, impermanence, emptiness, elusiveness and allusiveness, simplicity, suffering, and austerity, overlaid with a quiet melancholy, something the Western mind has often found difficult fully to understand Think, if you will, of the prominent empty spaces in Japanese landscape painting, the ...
