Japan is "not a coffee table book"...

A quote from a blog, 1000 Things about Japan, that I just belatedly discovered via an article in the Japan Times. Seems the author has lived in Japan for 20 years, but for some reason does not view it with rose colored glasses (or blinders) and sees both good and bad points about it. One could assume that there is nothing surprising about that, but in some quarters it could be seen as a radical view.

For example: Won't Miss #93: "Japanese People Don't Steal."


Won't Miss #78: Having my Japanese Mocked.


Won't Miss #75: Apologists

Of course she posts about things she will miss (if/when she leaves) too and it's all very much worth reading. This woman knows of what she writes.
