Based on the true story of someone who sacrificed his life to save others in a railway accident, this is a new beautifully illustrated manga version of one of Ayako Miura’s best-loved novels. It portrays a man’s journey of self-discovery that leads him towards understanding and acceptance of the Christian faith. This classic story in its own right has been reworked in the highly visually attractive manga style. Read a fuller English summary of Shiokaritoge here.
