Spring Snow is a novel that is about as perfect as they come—think Yin-Yang. It blends equal amounts of story, philosophy, and poetry, and keeps a wide focus on characters, story, romance, setting, language...

Spring Snow is the first in Four book series by Yukio Mishima. Each of the books explores a different aspect of human love and Japanese social history.
While the plot may sound like a Rom Com, it's quite a serious, and quite a dark look at the world from one of the most revered Japanese writers of the 20th century.

Dreams, memories, the sacred--they are all alike in that they are beyond our grasp. Once we are even marginally separated from what we can touch, the object is sanctified; it acquires the beauty of the unattainable, the quality of the miraculous. Everything, really, has this quality of sacredness, but we can desecrate it at a touch. How strange man is! His touch defiles and yet he contains the source of miracles.

... but very often a man's whole life alters course because of a moment's hesitation. That instant is like a fold made down the middle of a sheet of paper. In it, the underside becomes upmost, and what was once visible is hidden forever. p.80
