[Rental] Father of the Galactic Railroad
[Rental available after member registration]
Kenji Miyazawa, who was born in Hanamaki, Iwate Prefecture in 1896, created many poems and fairy tales while traveling mainly between Tokyo and Hanamaki until his death in 1933. Kenji's family has been a wealthy pawnbroker since his grandfather's generation, and as the eldest son, he would normally be in the position of succeeding the family, but Kenji pursued an academic career, later contributing to the local community as a teacher and engineer, while continuing to create. I kept pouring my passion into it. How did Kenji's father, Masajiro, who was a local celebrity and a devout follower of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, raise this unique son? An ambitious work by an up-and-coming writer, depicting Kenji Miyazawa's short but full of twists and turns from the perspective of his father, Masajirō, including his awakening to a faith different from his father's, and the death of his beloved sister Toshi.
