From the publisher: "Includes unpublished photographs taken when Moriyama visited Takuno in Shimane prefecture for visiting a grave in summer of 1987. A beautifully designed book including the photos, such as [an] elementary school in the village, the port, his parents' home, a brook, and graveyards, etc., where quiet peculiar lyricism becomes lively."
