Typhoon No.14 also known as ‘Nanmadol’ approaching the southwestern region of Kyushu made landfall yesterday, causing havoc with trains and planes throughout the region but also across Japan. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of Kyushu-native Seicho Matsumoto (1909-1992), a mystery and suspense novelist well-known for his true crime dramatizations turned into extended television dramas from the 1960s onward. Upon his death, his Tokyo residence has transplanted to Kokura in Kyushu where he grew up and installed within the Matsumoto Seicho Memorial Museum.
