Just as the English focused on Everest and the Germans on Nanga Parbat, so to did the Japanese focus on Manaslu. The Japanese Alpine Club made repeated visits to the mountain in 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955 and 1956. This profuse official report relates their failed attempt in 1954, the reconnaissance of 1955, and the successful ascent in 1956. Manaslu was the 8th 8000m peak to be climbed. This is a most-desireable work and is a matching volume to ‘Manaslu 1952-3’. In Japanese with a 13-page summary, several miscellaneous pages, and photo captions in English. Quite scarce.
