It has been 25 years since the much-loved British writer Alan Booth (1946-93) — famous for his Japan travelogues "The Roads to Sata," a description of a 2,000-mile end-to-end, four-month walk across Japan, and "Looking for the Lost," a collection of some more discrete historical explorations of Japanese regions — shuffled off this mortal coil at the tragically young age of 47.
