This Japanese Life.
 

Authored by Eryk Salvaggio
Edition: 1

Most books about Japan can tell you how to use chopsticks or say "konnichiwa." Few tackle the real stress of life in a radically different culture.

The author, a three-year resident and the writer and researcher behind one of the best Japan blogs, tackles the thousand tiny uncertainties of life abroad with honesty and wit.

Perfect for anyone about to leave home for Japan or elsewhere, This Japanese Life will deepen any reader's understanding of Japanese culture as it's fused into a method of dealing with the hardships of working and living there.
