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. It also made me miss Japan.
Sep 18, Annikky rated it liked it. Useful guide for jaoonezii who plan to go to Japan. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Acid short read plagued with cliches and topics from Japanese and the Japanese culture, likely to steal a xenifobului or two. Not remotely a great book, but funny to those who have lived in the country, and unavoidably discomforting: Having said that, some of the things in here are becoming old-fashioned.

Sandra Tait rated it liked it Oct 19, Leo rated it really liked it Oct 20, Adam Dunn rated it it was amazing Aug 16, Heavily stereotypical and makes a lot of assumptions but enables foreigners to grasp a bit of the Japanese society.
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”.

Informative, as far as I can tell with my superficial knowledge of Japan. Ok Nothing special but interesting at moments.

The Xenophobe’s Guide to the Japanese
A funny and light guide to the quirks of Japan and its people. Oliver Gilbert rated it it was amazing Jul 07, Aspects such as nose-blowing, not opening presents infront japnezii people, saying grace before eating, not shovelling food straight out of the bowl into the mouth and so on are things that my generation 20s just don’t bother about nowadays.
