Authors Hume and Annarino explore the back lanes and byways of Japan, take you past the signs that read PRAY SAFETY TRAFFIC and SPECIALIST IN PUNCTURE. Laughter ripples through the pages as they go home again, oriented but not reoriented. Back home they stare at the blondes, give the wives a hard time, sell the furniture, bow three times to the man next door.

For those who have been to Japan and "for the ones back home" this book is a must.
