    It is Tokyo in 1939. On the Street of a Thousand Blossoms, two orphaned brothers are growing up with their loving grandparents. The older boy, Hiroshi, shows unusual skill at sumo wrestling, while Kenji is fascinated by the art of creating hard-carved masks for actors in the Noh theater. In an exquisitely moving story that spans almost 30 years, Gail Tsukiyama draws us irresistibly into the world of the brothers and the women who love them.

    L. Walker says: "Another great story from Ms. Tsukyama"
    "Interesting look into Japenese culture"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I don't think I would. It took over half of the book to get me interested. The story is ok, I enjoyed learning more about Japanese culture. However, the story was quite depressing and a bit drawn-out.
