    One thought on “Miss One Thousand Spring Blossoms

    1. Kate Quinn on said:

      This book is obscure and difficult to find, but a must for anyone who loved Arthur Golden's "Memoirs of a Geisha." The plot is conventional enough - westerner enchanted and transformed by the mysteries of the east - but sympathetic characters and gentle humor make it a delightful read. Richard Seaton is a shy and awkward engineer from Boston, sent to Japan on business and horrified to be stepping so far out of his cautious comfort zone. But his particular brand of formal courtesy, regarded as la [...]

      I first read this novel back in the late '60s or early '70s. As a romance, it is one of my favorites, and I have reread it many times. As the 'novel' as grown with me, I have become more and more aware of something.John Ball's most famous book, "In the Heat of the Night", dealt with murder but also, in equal measure, with prejudice. In the '60s, that was a major concern."Miss One Thousand Spring Blossoms" is first and foremost a love story but it, too, addresses prejudice and the misconceptions [...]

      "Miss One Thousand Spring Blossoms" can be read with enjoyment on several levels, as a romance, as a cultural odyssey, or even as a clever presentation of mid-20th-century industrial practices in Japan. It succeeds on all those levels, but my favorite theme is the growth of the American protagonist Richard Seaton.The gentle love story between an American engineer encountering a timeless beauty (the geisha whose working name is the title of the book) provides an artful camouflage for the way Seat [...]

      So let's see here. An ignorant western guy who is completely naive and inexperienced with women moves to Asia for work. He falls for the first pretty face he sees, but is then easily distracted by several other girls who happen along and are nice to him. He goes from professing his undying love and affection for one girl to proposing marriage to another. No one is really honest with anyone else, whether it's just the ignorance at play or deliberate manipulation. There is absolutely no depth to a [...]

      Shy, nerdy businessman visits Japan on business, adjusts to a new culture and falls in love. A bit of a period piece, but it holds up well. Worth searching out at library or used book store.

    6. Ehsa on said:

      This was probably one of the first romances I read, and I did not recognize it as part of the genre at that time. I have always had a weakness for the book. Ball is not known for romances, to the best of knowledge, and it probably would not read as such to people only familiar with today's style. It's base on a true incident, and I find the story touching.

      I loved the story line, rich history of Japan. I learned a lot of their ways and customs. I feel in love with the main character. He was a gentle kind soul. I wish him happiness. It was easy to read and follow. Pleasant. I would highly recommend it. This is not an action story but a love story with culture mixed in.

    8. Amy on said:

      I liked the book, but not the ending. This is a story about an American engineer from Boston who travels to Japan to meet with a supplier and his encounters with Japanese customs, traditions and women. I would recommend it - especially to my Japan-living friends.

    9. Mylen Anceno on said:

      This book was actually good. I didn't expect that from a 1960's author. It showed me a glimpse of the whole Geisha business in Japan and about international love as well :)

    10. Greg on said:

      A nice love story about a businessman who finds love in a culture (Post-war Japan) he is unfamiliar with.

    11. Carrie on said:

      This was an obscure little book my mother and I ran across years ago. It was really really good. I'd love to find a copy one day because I loaned mine out, and now it's gone.
