Living Japanese Style, 1984
It's funny how two places on the complete opposite sides of the globe can be so similar. Living Japanese Style is an illustrated pocketbook that informs readers on what to expect when visiting Japan. It's full of rich nuggets like, "Japanese businessmen love karaoke. Sometimes, when they have too much to drink, they argue over whose turn it is for the microphone," and, "The food stalls are most active when the clubs and bars close, for the drinkers who want a late night snack." This all sounds eerily familiar. The book also guides readers on things like wedding etiquette, Japanese superstitions, how to travel in style, and more. Living Japanese style was published in 1984 by the Japan Travel Bureau and provides valuable (and sometimes humorous) insight on living in or traveling to beautiful Japan.
