I read three books of Kawabata , which I like very much, but I could not find more books of him here, ,and about ten books of Yukio Mishima .Mishima is much more known than Kawabata here, maybe because he had a scandalous and strange life and because of the way he gave death to himself..
I like to see places where my favorite writers have been; that makes them more alive to me, more "real", if you understand what I mean...

Must be a special hotel if famous writers stay there. The hotel name hilltop seems appropriate judging by the second picture. It sounds like hilton, only slightly better :-)
