Condition: Nr Fine v light handling. This unique copy comes in a hand-adressed envelope sent by mail by the artist from his home in Minowa, Tokyo.
Importrant early Araki self-published book from 1971. Second of the loose trilogy of privately printed books produced by Araki, preceded by Sentimental Journey (1971) and followed by Tokyo (1973). Araki took the photographs for this book during a visit to Okinawa, where he was working on a poster campaign for the Japanese Government to mark the return of Okinawa Island to Japanese administration after 27 years of United States control. Although the title suggests that it is a continuation of the work he made of his honeymoon in Sentimental Journey, the work is, in fact, unrelated and consists of a series of street scenes, some nudes and only a few photographs of his wife Yoko.
