Tokyo Dreaming is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of Tokyo Dreaming
It was a blink-and-you-might-have-missed-it kind of moment. Late last evening, the usual crowd spilled into the streets after a Bunraku performance at the National Theatre. A couple darted through the crush and into a black sedan idling at the curb. It was His Imperial Highness, the Crown Prince Toshihito, and his latest love interest, American Hanako Tanaka, mother to his illegitimate child, HIH Princess Izumi. The couple sat in general admission seats for the play. Those near them had no idea the Crown Prince was in their midst.Thirty days ago, Ms. Tanaka arrived in Japan quietly via commercial airliner toting a fraying LeSportsac duffel and Tamagotchi, HIH Princess Izumi’s pet dog, a mutt with unknown breeding (a far cry from the purebred
Shiba Inus the empress favors). “Both mom and dog are tearing up the palace,” a member of the imperial staff says. “Ms. Tanaka refuses to let any of the staff wait on her. The dog is a menace and smells foul.”The Crown Prince has taken his lady love’s lead. He’s eschewed the heavier police escorts to venues, opting for unmarked vehicles and surprise visits instead. Gone are the imperial flags announcing the Crown Prince’s arrival, and the Imperial Household Agency’s rigidly prescheduled tours are a thing of the past. And in a stunning breach of imperial protocol, the couple has been openly affectionate—holding hands and whispering in each other’s ear while out in public.It is no great secret the Imperial Household Agency wishes for the prince to marry and produce a male heir to uphold the line of succession. But bridal candidates never included one such as Hanako Tanaka, an American with no ties to the former aristocratic families of Japan and who, at age forty, is well past her prime childbearing years.
