Books reviews
I borrowed this from the library for an upcoming job transfer to Japan. I proceeded to buy it just to have my own copy! Everything is clearly organized, easy to understand and it relays all the important information with a light background and application. The only way it could be better is if it had pictures, but that would add bulk!
Arrived in good time and as described! Lovely addition for our daughters' research into this subject.
this book is very easy to read and i like it as an introduction to the japanese culture. it should probably be followed up with a more thorough language reference book, but it is a good first read.
I bought this product new and it came used with high lighter marks. I paid $17.43 for a new book.
