Glimpses  of  Unfamiliar  Japan  is  a  collection  of  essays  by  Lafcadio  Hearn 
detailing  his  first  impressions  of  the  country  he  found  so  fascinating  he  decided  to 
stay  there  for  the  rest  of  his  life.  In  these  essays  and  recollections  he  expresses 
his  curiosity,  bewilderment,  and  marvel  at  Japanese  tradition,  culture  and  lifestyle. 
Lafcadio  Hearn  is  best  known  as  the  most  notable  person  to  introduce  Japan  to 
the  West.  He  produced  about  thirty  works,  including  translations,  retellings  of 
folktales,  and  travelogues.
