Synopsis

"One of the funniest peole ever to tap tap on a PC."
PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
Not since George Bush's memorable dinner with the Japanese prime minister has the Land of the Rising Sun seen the likes of a goodwill ambassador like Dave Barry. Join him as he belts out oldies in a karaoke bar, marries a geriatric geisha girl, takes his first bath in public, bows to just about everyone, and explores culture shock in all its numerous humorous forms, including: Failing to Learn Japanese in Only Five Minutes (Or: "Very Much Good Morning, Sir!") ; Humor in Japan (Take My Tofu, Please!); Sports in Japan ("Yo, Batter! Loudly Make it Fly!"), and more.

Dave Barry Does Japan

Been There !
August 3rd, 2015
Having lived in the Tokyo area for nearly three years, and Okinawa for another two, Dave Barry's book brought back a lot of memories. For American tourists, a little language preparation before arrival pays great dividends. There are some great guidebooks out that will also prepare you so your visit will be much more memorable.
