Format: Paperback
While in university as an exchange-student-to-be, I rec'd this from my future homestay in Tokyo. It has since become on of my favorite quick references. Through college, five years in Japan, a Master's degree, and teaching Japanese@13 years it is still useful. This book has anything and everything, albeit just introductions to each subject, very useful pictures (for visual learners like me), and quite an array of vocabulary. I would suggest it as basicfor anyone needing information about Japan.@

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jesse A Stone on May 1, 2004
Format: Paperback
If you are a tourist traveling to japan for a short time this book would be useful, but there are several phase books avialable that are about one sixth the size with more information inside. When I first red this book I had been living in japan for 2 months and I found most of the information not very useful.
This book has pictures that you can easily do without and they are just a waste of space. The font size is almost three times too big so not much information is on each page even though this book is quite large. I found myself having to flip back pages constantly because discriptions of words where on a different page than the actual translation.
There is much better books avialable.
As someone wanting to learn Japanese I dont recommend this book.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Emily on December 6, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book was the very first book I ever got when I took the first big step of deciding I wanted to teach myself Japanese. I found the pronunciation guide helpful, although at a glance, it was hard to understand. For every subject they mention, however, they give great dialogue and explanations of certain words, cultural differences, etc. I was 14 when I began reading this book, and was able to understand it very well. However, being on my own with this language had its downfalls, for when I actually got into a classroom, I found I had the pronunciation a little off, but I was able to pick up very quickly on the hiragana and katakana writing systems, sentence structure, and vocabulary. This is a great beginner's book!!!!
