Klas...yes, absolutely. In spite of some political I have with this, this is one of the best english language pamphlets around. One day (promises, promises), I hope transcribe some movement reports from the 1920s that appeared in the NY anarchist newspaper "The Road to Freedom". In regard to Japan, the timepiece articles discuss the syndicalist movement.

Will see about creating PDF from a good hard copy held by The Sparrows' Nest where we also have the correspondence with John leading to its publication by ACF. It was originally produced for printing on offset litho with original photos supplied by John screened and stuck on opposite pages of the text lay-out which is why the online version is text only. The second ed. with spikymike's postscript is online here: http://af-north.org/afed/ace/japan.html
For further historical note, preface seen in both eds. was by my own hand and I produced first printed ed. and both online editions. Knightrose layed out the second edition.
