Summary (From the publisher):

A family moves into a new home on a windswept hilltop in suburban Tokyo. Around them is the sky, forests, farms. But the developers are coming, and the children are growing up. There are meals, quandaries, conversations...Junzo Shono's portrait of this family's daily life has the resonant power of fine photography, where the most minute details suggest a changing, unforgiving universe. Shono is the absolute master of this "snapshot" genre, and this is his most celebrated work. A quiet yet sumptuous book for readers weary of action and attitude.
