About this item

After the death of their parents, brothers Hiroshi and Kenji Matsumoto are raised by their grandparents in Tokyo. They both have quintessentially Japanese dreams: Hiroshi wants to become a sumo wrestler and Kenji wants to master the art of making Noh masks. These plans are disrupted by the onset of World War II. Gail Tsukiyama's novel eloquently traces the Matsumoto brothers as they struggle to fulfill their dreams in a world suddenly turned upside down. Rich with historical detail and emotional insight, THE STREET OF A THOUSAND BLOSSOMS captures the rise and fall and rise again of Japanese culture, and creates a vivid portrait of the people who lived through the tumult of the era.
Raised by loving and traditionally minded grandparents, Japanese youths Hiroshi and Kenji are forced to put their dreams on hold in the wake of World War II and find their destinies intertwining with those of a famous sumo master's daughters.
