Wanderland Writers introduces the eighth anthology and the latest addition to the widely praised Wandering series:

Visiting Japan turns the world upside down and inside out — just the way editors Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Laurie McAndish King like it.

In this eighth collection of the popular Wandering series, Wandering in Japan: The Spirit of Tokyo, Kyoto and Beyond, our adventuresome writers set off on yet another exciting trip of discovery, meeting a mysterious geisha, experiencing the dark side of Mount Fuji, confronting a confusing cuisine, encountering spooks and spirits, considering the legacy of Hiroshima, experiencing a religious initiation and recounting a story of almost unbelievable devotion.

Work by: Daphne Beyers, Joanna Biggar, Mary Brent Cantarutti, Tom Harrell, Lenny Karpman, Lowry McFerrin, Ethel Mussen, Mary Jean Pramik, Michele Rivers, Tania Romanov, Anne Sigmon, Rob “Tor” Torkildson and more ...
