This book discussed aspects of Japan that the author experienced during his stay there. If you do not know anything about Japan, you will definitely learn a lot about it after you're done reading this book. Those who want to live in or just learn more about the Land of the Rising Sun should definitely check it out. I highly recommend it.

Really enjoyed it! A unique take on life in Japan from a "gaijin." point of view.

I really enjoyed reading this. The stories are a riot. They are all about a page and half though. A little more discussion making them maybe 3 pages would be better. Would be great to have a book like this for lots of different countries
