Author. In 1890 he went to Japan to write a series of articles for an American publisher. He became so enamored with the country and its culture that he spent the rest of his life there, taking the name Yakumo Koizumi. Hearn's 12 books written during this period include "Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan" (1894), "Kokoro" (1896), "Japanese Fairy Tales" (1902), and "Japan: An Attempt at Interpretation" (1904).
