New Discover Nikkei Serial: Silk

To mark the 150th anniversary of the first Japanese sojourners to create a silk and tea enterprise, the Wakamatsu Colony (1869-71), I’ve started a new serial for the Discover Nikkei website, “Silk” The first chapter is from the POV of Jou Schnell, the wife of the colony’s founder. Enjoy! The serial will appear on the fourth of every month. At some point soon, I’ll add a list of all my online serials on my website.
