Oliwia Gromadzka

The article aims to analyze the portrait of the Japanese landscape that emergefrom Polish travel writing published in late 19th century. Three (and thus all known) texts written by Polish travelers Karol Lanckoroński, Paweł Sapieha and Hugo Zapałowicz are analyzed. The authors traveled independently to Japan at the end of 1880s. The reflection focuses on the individual features of the narrative, such as comparisons, landscape representations, intercultural relations or stereotypes about non-European societies, which constitute a distinctive description of Japan characterized by a colonial view.
