Japanese Girls and Women

by Alice Mabel Bacon


After spending a year in Tokyo, American teacher Alice Mabel Bacon became the first author to usher Western readers into the graceful, paper-walled realm of the Japanese woman. An intimate friend of several Japanese ladies, Bacon was privy to a domestic world which remained closed to male visitors. With its insight into Japan's class system, cultural history and moral framework, this book remains an essential complement to any study of Japanese social history.
