Well after receiving this book about a month or so ago, I've finally gotten around to looking at it. I can't say I actually read it, because I don't read nor speak Japanese. But here's what I can describe about it. The book's 5 X 7 inches & has 48 pages. It's written by someone named Yoko Kato. It has a color photo inside the insert [her standing in front of an Elvis statue] & another color photo on the back of the insert [her standing in front of the Graceland gates]. There's 9 black & white photos that has the following:1.Lansky's store window, 2.her standing in front
of Sun Studios, 3.the front of Graceland, 4.her standing behind Graceland, 5.the Graceland ranch, 6.Elvis' gravesite, 7.A far shot from a Greyhound station & Western Union, 8."Mud Island" [page 36] & 9.her standing in front of that no longer existing Elvis restaurant that I suddenly forgot the name offhand. The inside of the back insert has a photo of a Sun Studio ticket as well as a photo of Graceland ticket dated 7/7/2002. Although most of what's written is in Japanese, the titles of the chapters are in English & says the following:
1."The Start Of My Great Journey" [page 6], 2."From Houston To Memphis" [page 11],
3."SUN STUDIO[Elvis's First
Recording]" [page 17], 4."Now,
For Graceland" [page 21], 5."A
Break" [page 33], 6."Mud Island"
[page 37], 7."SUN STUDIO again,
And Sightseeing In Memphis" [page 38], 8."On My Way Home"
[page 45] & 9."The End Of My
Great Journey" [page 47]. Even though I can't read what's said inside, in my opinion it seems that Miss Kato has had a wonderful & pleasant time during her stay in Memphis. With shipping [from Japan to the USA]
the total comes to 2400 Japanese Yen [comes to around $22.60 in US dollars depending on the exchange rate during that day & time]. If you were in Japan & bought it there, without shipping it's 900 Japanese Yen
[that's about $8.24 US dollars].
Although the rules here say that I can't post URL's, the best way I can describe on how you can get this, is after going on Amazon Japanese link, type in "My Elvis
Craze" in the rectangular box & after you get to that link, click where it says "Display In English" & it'll take you to a partially english version of the link. When ordering, do it VERY CAREFULLY so you won't make any
errors. They even have a "Help In English" section on that site. So for those wondering what this book is like, my description was the best way that I can describe it. Hope this helps in some way.
