Tokyo Love Story: A Manga Memoir of One Woman's Personal Journey in the World's Most Exciting City (Told in English and Japanese Text) (Paperback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

A funny and intimate travelogue of one woman's unexpected adventures in Japan.



French illustrator Julie Blanchin-Fujita arrived in Tokyo for what she thought would be a one-year stint, and ended up never leaving. In this graphic novel-style memoir she shares her love of Japan, while depicting personal experiences and stories from her life in Tokyo-from the exotic (sumo wrestlers, ramen, hot springs, tatami mats, bentos, Japanese trains, Mount Fuji, earthquakes) to the everyday (hanging out with friends, moving houses, falling in love).



Her voyage of discovery in the world's most exciting city will appeal to a broad range of readers-from those contemplating a trip to Tokyo and Japanophiles to fans of graphic novels and anyone who enjoys a good manga love story. Packed with keen cultural observations, this enchanting story is told in both English and Japanese-also making it a great language learning resource.
