Interesting book but the name of dishes made me headache. 1/5 of each paragraph are in Japanese as they are ingredient / sauce / dish name.

Eating in Japan is one of a series of pocket guidebooks aimed at English-speaking travelers to Japan. A little stiff, a little awkward, they nevertheless give a lot of useful information in a small package.

This is my favorite book in the series. If you wish to travel to Japan, it were better if you knew what food to expect and how to ask for it or for alternatives. These days it's more common to be able to find Japanese food in the US, but back in the 'eighties when this book was published Japa

I never get hungry looking at this book, but it's really cute. But more important it introduces all the famous dishes in Japan - so one can study up the names and food items before landing at Narita. A must plane read type of book.
