"When I held the first proof of the book in hand" said Mr. Kobachi in a personal interview, "I was thrilled to know that I would be published in the USA. It's like a dream come true. Many thanks to my editor - I'm delighted to share my essays with English readers."
In his book, Mr. Kobachi, a resident of Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, writes about his travel experiences in Hawaii and New York City, as well as London, England, and a fictional island, Earth. During his three and a half years traveling around Hawaii, Mr. Kobachi attended a writing workshop at Intercultural Communications College (ICC) during which he decided to write his travel memoirs and seek to share them with Americans.
"We are pleased to have Mr. Kobachi join our growing list of outstanding Savant Books and Publication's authors. Savant continues to seek quality established as well as first-time authors," says Daniel S. Janik, publisher and senior editor. "We welcome outstanding international writers like Mr. Kobachi writing in English."
Yasuo Kobachi was born in Takefu, Fukui Prefecture, Japan, and worked for a private juku (cram) school for 25 years. Currently continuing his tour of the United States, these essays are short glimpses of America through Japanese eyes.
