Product description


"Overall the author had a detailed explanation of effects from Japan golden age (Showa Era) while also expressing his feelings towards the changes of the nation environment, culture, politics and economy. It is full of bitter and sweet about the Showa Era..." --Goodreads "[A] quirky assemblage of 34 extremely brief chapters that are each vignettes on a variety of topics, from the changing style of Japanese eateries to the author's belief in the failure of Japan's media to play their proper watchdog function." --CHOICE "A work of eminently readable journalism, but also of scholarly scope, an engaging mix of analysis and memoir." --Japan Times
