Mar 01, Kaponezii rated it really liked it. Frank, irreverent, funny–almost guaranteed to cure Xenophobia. Not to be taken entirely seriously, of course, but it’s an entertaining and moderately informative quick read. Other books in the series.

I bought this slim little book in Japan on the recommendation of one of the people in the tour I went on. Not remotely a great book, but funny to those who have lived in the country, and unavoidably xenofobulji 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.

The Xenophobe’s Guide to the Japanese
Having lived in Japan for six years, I can say that this book is well ghidjl, accurate and funny. Acid short read plagued with cliches and topics from Japanese and the Japanese culture, likely to steal a laugh or two.

A funny and light guide to the quirks of Japan and its people. No trivia or quizzes yet. Soledad Garcia rated it really liked it Apr 29, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
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. 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”.
Having said that, some of the things in here are becoming old-fashioned. Brief, superficial, but fun.

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.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Sep 23, Judith rated it really liked it Shelves: The Xenophobe’s Guide 1 – 10 of 33 books. 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 they are. It also made me miss Japan. Return to Book Page.
