"The book explores many important aspects of Japanese society. With help from his book, visitors will certainly better understand the people and their culture." —Travel Pulse
"In Japan, the process of accomplishing a goal is just as significant, if not more significant, than the actual result—a notable contrast to the West. De Mente defines kata as the 'way things are supposed to be done,' and he educates readers on how the concept has shaped Japan throughout its history and the present. […] Japan: A Guide to Traditions, Customs and Etiquette is really an exploration of the Japanese psyche. " — JQ Magazine
"This book is great for everyone that is interested in the Japanese culture and wants to go beyond the surface of this fascinating country and its people.

If you have plans to go in the future you will have a better understanding of the culture and ways of Japan after reading Japan: A Guide to Traditions, Customs and Etiquette. I highly recommend it." —Castle View Academy blog
