7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on October 17, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is a gem. Intended as a guide for individuals seeking to conduct research in Japan in the social sciences or cultural studies, DOING FIELDWORK IN JAPAN not only accomplishes that goal beautifully but also serves as an invaluable and entertaining introduction to the rules of Japanese society that will be of interest to a wide range of readers. Here is a chance to learn about the customs that govern social interaction in Japan from bright, articulate, and, yes, even humorous scholars for whom mastering and implementing these rules was absolutely essential to the accomplishment of major research projects that earned them positions as respected commentators on Japan.
