Tachibana Soto-o was Japanese novelist who has created during 1920s-30s. His style became somewhat grotesque. Most of his works were based on foreign stories. However, this modernist writer has seldom been mentioned since his death in 1959, and materials available on him are hard to obtain. Many of his early works are out of print, and the few critical pieces on his works are superficial in nature.
Tachibana Soto-o was born on October 10, 1894 in Ishikawa, Japan.
Tachibana left middle school to work for a trading firm and studied literature by himself.
