Item description for Tabibito (The Traveler) by Hideki Yukawa...
This is Yukawa's autobiography of his early years, written in Japanese when he was fifty years old. It describes his family background and the education and experience, both social and intellectual, that helped to form his character and direct his career. Especially valuable to the historian of science are his discussions of scientific relationships with his colleague Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, with his teacher Yoshio Nishina, and with his students (who later became his collaborators): Sakata, Taketani, and Kobayashi. The Story ends with the writing of his first scientific paper in English, being the birth of the meson theory of nuclear forces.
Also included are the original paper of the meson theory by Prof H Yukawa and an introduction by Prof L M Brown.

Tabibito (The Traveler) Apr 30, 2000
This book is an autobiography of Hideki Yukawa, who is the most famous physicist in Japan, and also one of the most famous physicists in the world. In fact, he is the first Nobel prize winner in Japan. In the period when he found his theory, Japan was kind of isolated in the world. In this are, how did he find very famous his theory? You will know it if you read this book. And to tell the truth, he was NOT intrested in physics so much first. You will know why he bigun to study physics. I strongly recommend this book!
