Kiryu is 81 miles by rail north-northwest of Tokio. It is an important town of about 25,000 people. The chief products are silk, satin, crape, and gauze. A large factory, called the Nippon Orimono Kwaisha, is equipped with French machinery for the manufacture of satin in the European style. A canal, cut for the purpose, brings water from the adjacent hills for the use of this factory.
This is a good representative view of Japanese land- The low mountains, the houses of a single story with thatched or tiled roofs-with trees and gardens and fields interspersed; the tiny farms, cultivated so carefully that weeds are as scarce as diamonds; the dwarfish trees; the boy in his gay kimono, that brings to memory Joseph's coat of many colors-everything is typically Japanese.
