Riding a magical night train on a celestial railway through the universe, two young friends encounter a host of unusual characters: a celestial corps of army engineers, a comical paleontologist digging away at the banks of the Milky Way, electrical squirrels, and shipwrecked children amid lighthouses for double stars. As we follow their journey we begin to realize this is more than a child's tale. Miyazawa Kenji (1896-1933), one of Japan's most beloved poets and writers, has superimposed the Buddhist universe on the night sky and created an irresistable and sublime glimpse of a hereafter that is limited only by the reader's imagination. Translated into English from the Japanese by Sarah M. Stong. (Key Words: Miyazawa Kenji, Japanese Literature, Sarah M. Stong, Bryn Barnard, Buddhism, Milky Way).
