Product description

Book Description

An alternative look at Japanese culture, history and life.

From the Back Cover

An alternative look at Japanese culture, history and life.

Gaijin - a Japanese word meaning 'foreigner, literally 'outside person'.

Your Rough Guide or Lonely Planet book can tell who where to stay or what to see, but how do you really get under the skin of Japan? In his entertaining new book, Ben Stevens explores the serious and the frivolous, the history and the obsessions of a fascinating nation.

Taking an A-Z walk through Japanese culture, A Gaijin's Guide to Japan looks at everything from akachochin bars to zen with all manner of weird and wonderful things in-between. These include geisha, inari shrines and karaoke as well as handy guides to kanji and sushi.

A Gaijin's Guide to Japan is the perfect book for the
Japanophile in all of us.
