Description
[From Nausicaa.net]:

Shuna is a prince of a very poor country. His people have very little that they can grow on their poor land, and are starving. Shuna hears of the Land of the Gods and of the Golden Wheat growing there, and so he journeys there to bring the seeds back to his people. After a very long and hard journey, he finally reaches the Land of the Gods, and steals some seeds. But he is severely punished for his crime. However he is nursed back to health by a girl whom he once rescued from slavery, and who now lives in a mountain village. She also plants Shuna's seeds and protects them from the elements. Eventually, the crop season comes, and she now has to choose a husband...

A charming little folklorish tale from Miyazaki, reminiscent of his older adventure movies - especially Mononoke-hime as a number of ideas from here later made it into that movie. The book is lovingly illustrated throughout in watercolour, and there are one or two pieces in here that I really wouldn't mind having hanging on my wall.

Shuna no Tabi was pretty much the first book that I read all the way through in Japanese. The vocabulary is a bit on the intermediate side, but I found the grammar to be nothing too hard and taking it one chapter at a time it was pretty easy reading. So, if you are learning Japanese I would definitely reccomend it.

The only niggle I have about the book is that there are times when the colour contrast between the words and the background isn't all that good, but there were only really a few places where I had to try squinting to make out the words so I don't really feel it's that big an inconvenience.

One last thing: Tales from Earthsea directed by Miyazaki Goro was partly inspired by this little manga, and you can see a number of images and scenes from this book appearing in the movie. Also, the main protagonists from the movie seem pretty much based on the ones here, even though they're supposedly from the books that the movie was actually based on... I'd suggest reading the original novels and this manga instead.

The story is beautiful, but the manga is much different from other mangas. The characters don't say a word, and the story is told by a narrator, like in a picture book.

You can see many images from Mizayaki's movies. After all, he drew this before he made the movies.
