Description:
What impact did World War II and the dropping of the atomic bomb have on the common people of Japan? Japanese artist Fumiyo Kouno answers these questions through the eyes of an average woman living in 1955. As the characters continue with everyday life, the shadow of the war and the atomic bombing linger ghostlike in the background.

Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms is made up of interconnected short stories; the first is a love story entitled "Town of Evening Calm," followed by the two-part story "Country of Cherry Blossoms."

Story and art by Fumiyo Kouno.
