Wenceslau de Moraes. A vida japonesa. Terceira serie de Cartas do Japão (1905-1906). Oporto : Livraria Chardon de Lello & Irmão, 1907. [Japanese Life. Third series of Letters from Japan.]

Moraes’s love of Japan is evident in his multi-volume Cartas do Japão. His third and last volume covers numerous topics about daily life in the country and gives special attention to the customs of Japanese women. He also writes about Portugal’s centuries-long fascination with Japan.
