I enjoyed reading this book. I could relate to what the author went (and is probably still going) through in Japan. If you are looking for a book that offers an interesting and thought-provoking account of a foreigner's daily interactions, comical experiences, and deep emotional connections with Japanese in Japan, this is the book for you.
The book is not only about a sensitive issue that many in Japan, especially foreigners, see as the elephant in the room, but it is also about the author's journey of how his views on that issue have come to be the way they are today. I highly recommend it!
