Not just one of my favorite travel books or books about Japan,but one of my favorite books period.Nice to read a travel book about Japan that actually gets beneath the surface and strikes a nice balance between fawning or bashing, unlike many others by people who stay for a year and consider themselves experts*see Learning to bow for example.

He makes fun of Japan alot but also doesnt take himself too seriously which makes for some funny stuff.

Sharon Langworthy Really enjoying this as well. He clearly loves Japan and the Japanese, without the bashing or sugar-coating I've seen elsewhere. Makes me desperate to go back.
