A famous traveler returns to Japan. A study of social life and customs of Japan.
As a result, he makes Japan much more 'real' to the stranger than most observers do. There are plenty of jokes in his book, of course - and very good ones - but there is even more straight portraiture and perceptive interpretation. Whether he is describing student revolt or the Geisha habit, the problems involved in using ideagraphs or styles of car-driving, morals or manners, George Mikes always has something to say which is both surprising and true.
Includes b&w line drawings.
