In 1936 Kyoshi Takahama and Riichi Yokomitsu made a voyage from Japan to Europe on the same ship. After they landed at Marseilles, Kyoshi called on his son in Paris and traveled through Europe, while Yokomitsu went to see the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games after a stay in Paris and some travels through Europe. After their return to Japan, Kyoshi published Tofutsu Nikki, and Yokomitsu Oshu Kiko. Though they had similar experience on board, their records of their voyages are quite different. The purpose of this paper is to compare these two works and to consider their difference and the common social background.
