Abstract:

"The Torri gate, a novel set in present-day Japan, involves six major characters, three Japanese and three Americans, both men and women, caught up in a right-wing conspiracy to overthrow the Japanese government. The conspirators, who call themselves the "Samurai Society," believe that democratic rule runs counter to Japanese history and tradition, and is an alien import of American culture. The "Society" is set on overturning the government to restore Japan to its "essential Samurai traditions" and Emperor-worship, and at the same time to purge Japan of American influence. The major characters include an internationally known Japanese novelist who is the founder and head of the "Samurai Society," his wife and ward, his American translator, and two American diplomats assigned to the American embassy in Tokyo."--Edteck.com.
