From the Inside Flap
A tribute to Japanese film maker Yazujiro Ozu and his cinematic masterpiece Tokyo Story, Wim Wenders reiterates the movie s journey to the fishing town of Onomichi as a personal pilgrimage. The German film maker describes the real town of Onomichi as he finds it with the shy and admiring eyes of a sensitive foreigner: in color photographs and in a long prose poem, while the 24 pictures of the book can be seen as poems themselves. Through this combination of text and images the town of Onomichi is transformed into both a poetic and a real place before our very eyes.
