You never forget your first time. That’s probably why - two years after Quaderni Giapponesi, the graphic novel about his first travel in Japan - the italian cartoonist Igort decides to go back there and walk the Manga Do (the “Manga Way”). By his side there is Domenico Distilo, like some years before in the Soviet Countries, to catch his thoughts and reflections. Igort imprints his experiences with pencils and watercolors, sketching landscapes and people he finds on his way. He observes an ancient part of Japan, reflecting about time and about a foreign culture that influenced not just his art but also his - or it’s better to say ours- perception of life and existence.
