Review of “Bear’s Wood Main Line” (1974)


Tsutsui Yasutaka (writer).

Read in 2022.

A man looking for noodles accidentally breaks a rural Shinto taboo.

A more tedious retread of “Farmer Airlines” (1974) in the same genre of banter. Even the motif of transgression is just a throwaway joke. See The Sound of Waves (1954) for more gentle mockery.
