Publisher Description

Being in Japan on vacation or for work can be an amazing experience, but it can also feel like a challenge because of the country’s unique culture, its distinct way of life, and the inevitable language barrier.

Originally intended as a guidebook for the participants in an international event held in Kyoto, this book offers a brief outline of a country known worldwide for its elegant culture, futuristic technology, contradictions, and transformations. It also offers solutions to problems one may encounter during their stay in Japan.
