A reprint of Jiro Taniguchi's most beloved title, now with additional stories and some color pages

The Walking Man is a book in which nothing happens but everything occurs. It follows a modern-day Japanese business man as he strolls at random through urban Japan—often silent, usually alone—with his vivid dreams that let time stand still. Join him as he climbs a tree in bare feet, takes time out to observe the birds, plays in the puddles after the rain, and returns a shell to the sea. It is an ideal way for readers and graphic novel-lovers to relax.
