22 4 Continental Adventurer Water, sky; sky and water, clouds; these gave way to land, seemingly floating in the water; this was the mainland of China. This was to be my second homeland, one that had appeared so often in my dreams. ¯ten —Miyazaki To K awashima Naniwa’s reputation has been assaulted from various quarters over the years, and mention of his name can still bring on a lot of yelling. That kind of roughing up, however, does not take place within hearing of his small circle of surviving fans, who would not tolerate such insults.

Years later, with wars, a lengthy prison stay, and tragedies behind him, Pujie still savored that moment when he first met his future wife: Unexpectedly, for both of us it was love at first sight, and I agreed to make Saga Hiro my wife. At the start, this was a marriage that the Kwantung Army had arranged on its own, but it turned into a marriage in which a husband and wife shared a deep love for each other and many hardships, joy, and sadness. Over the years, we two would frequently talk about who had been responsible for bringing us together as a married couple, inseparable for our entire lives.

He was the oldest son, and traditions of filial piety demanded that he renounce his own desires for his family’s sake, but Naniwa seems to have had little regard for this oldfashioned Confucian concept. He scrounged around to collect his travel expenses and at last took a boat to Shanghai in September 1886, explaining that if he did not go now, his future would amount to nothing. He urged his virtually penniless parents to hold out for just a little while longer and in later writings at least had the decency to say that he had felt qualms about leaving his relatives at the dock.
