Editorial Reviews

Review

"Being Japanese American is a superb guide to avoiding breaches of tact around Japanese friends, family, or visitors, regardless of one's own ethnic heritage or background, and is also chock-full of helpful ways to embrace, preserve, and treasure one's cultural identity." ― Midwest Book Review

"Offers a great opportunity for JAs to process their feelings and experiences in relationship to other JAs who, through their stories and photos, share empathy and understanding." ― Asian Reporter

"Teens who want to know a little more about contemporary Japanese American culture beyond all the history books about the World War II internment experience will find great information here…" ― Voice of Youth Advocates, April 2005 Issue

"A must-read book that will delight you with its humor and amuse you with its insights; for non-Asian, a must-read book if you’re curious about what makes Japanese Americans tick." ― John Tateishi, National Executive Director, Japanese American Citizens League

"Part history, part photo album, part cultural document, part memoir, part language lesson, even part cookbook, Being Japanese American is an entertaining primer on many aspects of the Japanese American experience." ― BookDragon

"A lighthearted view into the unique lingo, idiosyncrasies and nuances of Japanese American life." ― DiscoverNikkei.org
