6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Glenn Simon Inc on July 11 2009
Format: Paperback
I've lived in Japan for 10 years now and I've read a lot of books written by ex-pats about Japan. Some are romantic, others cynical, there are even some angry ones out there but none are as bang on as this because all those emotions are here and as a bonus the book's funny as hell.

In fact I will go so far as to say it's the only one you need to read.

A few weeks in Japan won't give you the true feel of the country, I'm not sure even a few decades will but the Japan captured in this book has all the idiosyncrasies, wonders and downright craziness you will find in this fantastic country. It's like Japan reduced to the truest- forget your Lonely Planet this is way more useful.

Will's trip to follow the cherry blossoms is so wonderful I'm betting a lot of long time residents are slapping their foreheads and saying, "Why didn't I think of that!"

The beauty of Japan during the cherry blossoms is unsurpassed and the revelry is unending. The whole country shakes off it's winter blanket grabs a bottle of sake and comes out to party. If you can't go you'll certainly live it vicariously through this book.

I loved this book and am going to order all his books spaced out slowly so I can enjoy them over the rest of my life.

If you love Bill Bryson then you will love Will Ferguson.

My humble gaijin opinion.

If you have lived or visited Japan, this book is for you. I learned about japanese culture that I didn't know, even after three years of living there. The book was full of interesting cultural tidbits and lots of funny stories that anyone who has ever had the pleasure of being the local gaijin can totally understand. Read it. :-)
