Tutiki rated it liked it Mar 08, Cristina Langa rated it liked it May 08, Japonezi for telling us about the problem. It’s a funny little read and it does give you quite a bit of insight slightly tongue in cheek about why the Japanese are the way xenofobhlui are. But for anyone interested in Japan or going there, this is definately worth reading.
Having lived in Japan for six years, I can say that this book is well researched, accurate and funny. Aspects such as nose-blowing, not opening presents infront of people, saying grace before eating, not shovelling food straight out of the bowl into the mouth and so on are things th I bought this slim little book in Japan on the recommendation of one of the people in the tour I went on.

The Xenophobe’s Guide to the Japanese
The comparisons between Westerners and Japanese are an essential part of this guide. Sep 18, Annikky rated it liked it. I bought this slim little book in Japan on the recommendation of one of the people in the tour I went on.
Having said that, some of the things in here are becoming old-fashioned. Want to Read saving…. Soledad Garcia rated it really liked it Apr 29, So what do you make of those that don’t?
At times it seemed to be pulling punches; for example in the section on holidays they tell us “A total absence of biblical knowledge is no deterrent to young Japanese attending Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve”. Ok Nothing special but interesting at moments.

But while living in Tokyo for five years in the early 90s, I found it way funnier that Christmas Eve is the busiest day of the year for Love Hotels, that everybody books their rooms months in advance, and nobody knows why this romantic conflation exists.

Sahoko Kaji (Author of The Xenophobe’s Guide to the Japanese)
I don’t understand what it is about this third one that made it less funny, it is very thorough and deliberate but it took me literally months to finish as I could only get through a few pages at a time and then let it sit around for ages before picking it up again. Brief, superficial, but fun. Before moving to Germany, reading the Xenophobe’s Guides to Germans and also to Americans really helped us prepare, manage expectations, and plus I found them both hilarious.
