Publisher's Summary

Japan is at a crossroads. The postwar economic miracle that brought it unprecedented development and prosperity is over. Since the publication of the first Culture Smart! guide, it has been overtaken by China as the world's second-largest economy. The balance of power in Asia has shifted and new players are entering the field. No one can predict how Japan will rise to the challenge, or what effect the changes will have on how people live, think, and behave. Paul Norbury's revised and updated edition of Culture Smart! Japan will guide you through a shifting cultural maze, and help you make your visit to this important, dynamic, and creative society a rich and mutually rewarding experience.

A collection of material on Japan that could easily be found on the web!

Disappointed that the text seems so out of date, even though this is supposed to be a revised addition. Written from the perspective of someone who has collated third hand information. The statistics seem a little out of date - “40 % of marriages are arranged”. I’m in Japan as I write this review. His review of train travel also out of date. Better off searching the web than buying this book. It was a let down!
