What to see, what to do, what to read...
I was looking over the English books available at Kinokuniya Fukuoka yesterday and it occurred to me I could spend an entire lifetime and never finish reading all the texts on Japan; everything has been jotted down, mapped, and stamped with a seal of approval.
And I always see something appealing:
Bar Flower, Lea Jacobson
- an insider's perspective on hostessing in Tokyo
Turning Japanese, David Mura
- a third-generation Japanese raised in Chicago looks for meaning in Nippon
Japanese Higher Education as Myth, Brian J. McVeigh
- why examinations do not equal education
