The Meiji Era (1868-1912) was probably the most defining period in Japanese history. It was a time of massive change from the more traditional Takugawa era to a positioning of Japan in the modern world. Contemporary writer, Soseki Natsume, suffered due to all the social and cultural changes and expressed his feelings through his character Botchan.
Story and art by Jiro Taniguchi & Natsuo Sekikawa.
