In this book the author has intended to portray Japan as he finds it rather than as it was in the past.

However, the past is not ignored as it would be both foolish and futile. It is noted whilst there are no parts of Japan, and very few of her people, entirely unaffected by the new civilization, yet there are still some segments which are comparatively unchanged by the new ideas and ideals.

It is observed that although those who have been least affected by the changes are more in number than those who have been most influenced by the change, yet the latter are much more active and powerful than the former.
