"Yasukazu Arai's design for this book is both unusual and opulent. The cover is made from heavy cardboard, and the inner pages are of the same material, slightly less thick, like one of those children's books designed to give a sense of substantiality and durability....This is an example of Japanese New Topographic photography, and Momoyo Kaijima duly notes its intended objectivity in his essay on Homma's work...At first glance, we can make the standard response: suburbs are soulless places...But Homma's suburbs seem also to evince more positive qualities...they seem remarkably well landscaped, luxuriant and well manicured, with little hint of the graffiti and rubbish that accompany the suburbs of the West....the tone of Homma's book is ambiguous enough to both intrigue us and keep us guessing"--Parr and Badger, The Photobook, A History, vol. II
