Alice Mabel Bac What an intriguing book! Japanese culture was just beginning to transition during the author's years in Japan, and this book takes a sweet and respectful look at numerous small daily and large seasonal happenings in the lives of its women. She often compares the details with how Americans respond in similar situations. Many stories from individual families with whom she was acquainted. Truly an education to see the strength and character of these graceful, sedate girls and women

American Alice Mabel Bacon lived in Japan for many years before writing this famous study, a diary-like essay that explains many social customs that are still alive in the present day. "It is of the neglected half [of Japan] that I have written, in the hope that the whole fabric of Japanese social life will be better comprehended when the women of the country, also the homes that they make, are better known and understood." Contents: Childhood Education Marriage and Divorce Wife and Mother Old Age Court Life Life in Castle and Yashiki Samurai Women Peasant Women Life in the Cities Domestic Service Epilogue This work was originally published in 1905.

I thought that this book was very informative. The book talks about the traditional roles of japanese girls and women in the past. This is also an informative book about the feminism movement in Japan and how improvements have been made throughout the years for equal rights for women.

Written circa 1890, this is a diary-like essay on the lives of Japanese women at the turn of the century. It explains many of the old customs that are still present today among certain classes in Japan and those customs that will be used for the new Princess Royal born in 2001.
For those who know modern Japan, it is a an interesting comparative on the lives of women over time.

Alice M. Bacon wrote about a Japan that is long gone. The copy of her book that I have was published in 1902. It is old-fashioned in its views (to a modern reader) but refreshing in her ability to be largely non-judgmental of a society so different from her own. Ms. Bacon had insight and some courtesy in describing to her readers the details of a Japanese woman's life. Not for everyone, but for anyone interested in 'how things were,' a good book.
