近江路を歩いた人々 --- 旅日記に見る --- 

I completed reading the book this evening.

Ohmi Province (近江; Now Shiga pref.) where I live now used to be strategically important district from old days, since the area was very close to the old capital of Kyoto, so some of the representative roads, i.e., Tokaido (東海道), Nakasendo (中山道) and Hokkokudo (北国道) were laid from more than 1,200 years ago. The book deals with 40 episodes, some of which made me feel as if I were travelling on foot with them in those days.

PS: I was surprised to know that the author had been the teacher in my highschool days. (◎_◎;)
