The book – Hana Hikes the Hyakumeizan

A happy new year to all.

I have (at last) completed the book of climbing the 100 mountains of Japan with Hana (160 pages, hardback, premium paper,

I will be placing a bulk order at the end of January. If you would like to buy a copy, please email me (hana *at* hanameizan *dot* com) by January 31, 2010 and I will send you a copy when the books arrive in mid-February. The cost will be 6,000 yen (this is Blurb’s cost incl. postage, without any markup …)

Or, from February, it will be possible to order online (and anonymously) from Blurb publishers for about 7,000 yen.

This is the first (and probably last) book.

I can’t wait to return to hiking in the near future, with longer routes at a less frenetic pace.

  1. Screeech, I have never considered an exhibition or book signing. I decided to self-publish the book to look back on when Hana has gone and I’m in my rocking chair. Trying to sell it would never make a profit.

  2. Hi Julian, Glad to see you went ahead and published this after all. I wonder if you’d be interested my reviewing this for Kyoto Journal, where I am a contributing editor. Please let’s discuss this via email.



  3. Hi Julian. It’s me, Peter, again. I came here to get your URL for my blog (tsubakuro.wordpress) to add as a link. I am still interested in your book and if I can get a copy from you for 6,000 instead of 7,000 I sure would like that. I still don’t have the spare change just yet but give me a month or two. I think it would be cool to hook up with you and Chris sometime for a beer and a chat. I don’t know where Wes is but if he’s in town he would make a great addition to the table.

    Actually, I have an idea I want to pitch to a couple of periodicals to see if there are any takers. I have already asked Chris about it. I’d like to ask you too. If you’d like to find out what I am up to or talk about how I could get a copy of your book then drop me a few words at (I added the parenthesis to fool any address snatchers in case that is a problem – I don’t know if it helps).
