About this deal

Hough, Frank O.; Ludwig, Verle E.; Shaw, Henry I. Jr. " Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal". History of U.S. Marine Corps Operations in World War II . Retrieved 2006-05-16. Matsumoto's works created a new tradition of Japanese crime fiction. Dispensing with formulaic plot devices such as puzzles, Matsumoto incorporated elements of human psychology and ordinary life into his crime fiction. In particular, his works often reflect a wider social context and postwar nihilism that expanded the scope and further darkened the atmosphere of the genre. His exposé of corruption among police officials as well as criminals was a new addition to the field. The subject of investigation was not just the crime but also the society in which the crime was committed. Tic toc, tic toc” il tempo scorre inesorabile e ogni ora, minuto, secondo alla stazione di Tokyo si ferma un treno ogni binario, ciascuno con una precisa destinazione. I am afraid you can´t do so. Your Japan Rail Pass will start working for 7 consecutive days, once you active it. Therefore, you won´t be able to use it before the activation date. Due cadaveri su una spiaggia, a pochi chilometri da Tokyo. Giovani amanti, cianuro: è un suicidio, è chiaro. Ma:

Credited with popularizing the genre among readers in his country, Matsumoto became his nation's best-selling and highest earning author in the 1960s. His most acclaimed detective novels, including Ten to sen (1958; Points and Lines, 1970); Suna no utsuwa (1961; Inspector Imanishi Investigates, 1989) and Kiri no hata (1961; Pro Bono, 2012), have been translated into a number of languages, including English.

A labyrinth of convincing alibis and false leads... Matsumoto's classic status is richly deserved Daily Mail Is it better to visit Mt. Fuji using this JR pass? If so, I will go on my way to Tokyo, however, we have luggages, are we allowed to bring our luggages with us in and out of the trains in between and is there any storage place perhaps to keep our luggages first given our last stop will be in Tokyo but we just want to visit Mt.Fuji (Hakone or the Lake) just to see the Mt.Fuji? The Tokyo Express was the name given by Allied forces to the use of Imperial Japanese Navy ships at night to deliver personnel, supplies, and equipment to Japanese forces operating in and around New Guinea and the Solomon Islands during the Pacific campaign of World War II. The operation involved loading personnel or supplies aboard fast warships (mainly destroyers), later submarines, and using the warships' speed to deliver the personnel or supplies to the desired location and return to the originating base all within one night so Allied aircraft could not intercept them by day. Railway murders are a staple of the crime novel but the steel-belt setting is rarely used this well. Japanese crime fiction is famous for paying homage to Britain’s Golden Age mysteries, and Tokyo Express brings a puzzling crime, plenty of clues and red herrings aided by maps and diagrams. The exploration of character and motive are reminiscent of Maigret. The French newspaper Le Monde once called Matsumoto the Japanese Simenon. Yet this novel is so distinctly Japanese and original, the sense of calm and tranquillity it induces in spite of the seriousness of the crimes is remarkable. The murder of the head of a train company in Tokyo shortly after World War II was a significant event in Tokyo and may have helped this story gain traction with local readers. Moreover, there is no limitation to the number of times a JR holder can use Narita Express, whereas other transportation cards like SUICA, are not valid for the service.

Tokyo Express", romanzo d'esordio di Seicho Matsumoto, scritto nel 1958 è un compendio di diversi stilemi del giallo classico, non ultimo quello del "giallo ferroviario" (anche se qui il crimine non avviene in treno ma la ferrovia fornisce l'alibi) frequentato dai più grandi giallisti a partire da Agatha Christie con "Assassinio sull'Orient Express" ma anche con "Il mistero del treno azzurro" e altri racconti, oppure da Freeman Wills Crofts con "Il mistero dell’espresso della notte".When you travel with a Japan Rail Pass you won’t need to go to the counter everytime you are travelling if you take the included transportation. You will just need to go through the designated entrance and show you pass to the staff.
