Excerpt from Alone With the Hairy Ainu, or 3, 800 Miles on a Pack Saddle in Yezo and a Cruise to the Kurile Islands

First, that I went to Hokkaido entirely on my own account and for my own satisfaction. Next, that I accomplished the whole journey (some 4200 miles, out of which 3800 were ridden on horseback and on a rough pack-saddle) perfectly alone. By alone I mean that I had with me no friends, no servants, and no guides. My baggage consisted of next to nothing, so far as articles for my own convenience or comfort were concerned. I carried no provisions and no tent.

I am endowed with a very sensitive nature, and I pride myself in possessing the gift of adaptability to an extreme degree, and this may partly explain why and how I could live so long with and like the Ainu, whose habits and customs, as my readers will see, are somewhat different to ours.

A. H. Savage Landor (1865–1925) abandoned art for exploration, and travelled around the world, visiting Asia, the Middle East and South America.
