Unearth the true story of one man’s search for the meaning of life.
Disillusioned by life and feeling like a stranger in his own homeland of Japan, Shogo Onoe embarks on a profound spiritual journey to illuminate the meaning of life and find a radical new mode of understanding. Travelling across the Pacific to the vibrant country of Mexico, Shogo’s soul-searching brings him into contact with a rich, warm culture that pushes him to discover himself in a faraway land.
Told with engaging prose and with honest reflections on his experiences in these two radically different cultures, Shogo explores how three passionate Mexican friends transformed his worldview, along with how his wanderings unearthed astute new insights into the meaning of life. Blending spiritual revelations and philosophical musings with a unique perspective on the incredible cultural and social contrasts between Japan and Mexico, this book is perfect for anybody yearning for self-discovery, exploration, and adventure.
