Because Japan (Paperback)

£8.99
Usually despatched within 1 week.

Synopsis

Because Japan , is a truly unabashed account of the less publicised side of life in Tokyo for a 'foreigner'.

The book offers a witty, vivid and honest insight into the daily life of a British Expat over the course of two years. The author narrates stories taken from his "Journal of Firsts" which depict many new events including his first struggle, first mental challenge, and first exciting moment he faced living in this strange and fascinating new world.

Through the use of newly learned Japanese phrases whilst travelling the country, themes of soul-searching, overcoming mental health obstacles, sexual orientation, racial discrimination, and culture shock are explored with honesty and candour. With the addition of a train-based mini series of hilarious encounters, Because Japan offers a behind the scenes insight into the 'real' Japan.

Customer Reviews

Wow! I finished this book (review copy) in one sitting which is rare for me. I just found myself wanting to find out more of the authors personal journey living in Japan as a foreigner. I was really surprised to learn about what it is really like to live there as an expat and I couldn't believe some of the things the author had to go through. The book is really well written and it felt like I was really there with the author at occasions. This book is a really funny and interesting read. I would definitely recommend this to people who want to find out more about Japan.

Great book, a very funny read and an interesting non-tourist view of Japan through the eyes of a foreigner. I definitely would recommend anyone to check this one out. A must-read if you love Japan and Japanese culture.
