The Land of the Rising Sun is shining brightly across the American cultural landscape. Recent films such as "Lost in Translation" and "Memoirs of a Geisha" seem to have made everyone an expert on Japan, even if they've never been there. But the only way for a Westerner to get to know the real Japan is to become a part of it. Kate T. Williamson did just that, spending a year experiencing, studying, and reflecting on her adopted home. She brings her keen observations to us in "A Year in Japan", a dramatically different look at a delightfully different way of life. Avoiding the usual cliches - Japan's polite society, its unusual fashion trends, its crowded subways - Williamson focuses on some lesserknown aspects of the country and culture. In stunning watercolors and piquant texts, she explains the terms used to order various amounts of tofu, the electric rugs found in many Japanese homes, and how to distinguish a maiko from a geisha.
