Hitching Rides with Buddha
Published in an abridged pocketbook version in the UK, under the title “Hokkaido Highway Blues,” Will Ferguson’s critically acclaimed travel memoir has now been fully restored and revised.
“As a wordsmith and a traveller, Ferguson knows where he is going.”
- Boston Globe
"Beneath that thick skin lies a poetic soul: he may
drink too much, and end up sweaty and alone in sad 'Love
Hotels', but he can write about Shintoism, history, nature
and architecture with real sensitivity."
- Sunday Times
Follow Will Ferguson as he hitchhikes 1,800 miles north
through Japan following the cherry blossoms as they bloom
across the country (a phenomenon known as the Sakura Zensen).
