Pictures and photos

Images from Kenji Miyazawa's "The Restaurant of Many Orders"
Stencil-dyed picture postcards by Samiro Yunoki

In his introduction to "The Restaurant of Many Orders", Kenji explains,
"My stories are inspired by the rainbows, the moonlight,
and other such things I encountered down in the woods,
out in the meadows, and along the railroad tracks."

"The Restaurant of Many Orders" was issued in 1924
by Kogensha, a publishing house that Kenji himself named.
It is the only collection of Kenji's tales
that was published during his lifetime.
These picture postcards are my attempt
to convey the serenity and fantasy of Kenji's world.
--Samiro Yunoki describing his work.
