In which Lafcadio Hearn comes to Hatsue to teach, and experiences many magic things there; and how he falls ever more in love with Old Japan; and how he suffers from the dreadful winter weather, and get married (in theory, temporarily) to the daughter of an improverished samurai family; and how he moves into an old house in the samurai quarter and begins to write about Buddhism, Shinto, and the race soul of the people; and how he never stops longing for the tropics; and why he feels it necessary to leave Natsue after just a year.
