Review & giveaway 12: Cool Japan Guide

15 Mar

Yet another review of a book and giveaway from Tuttle Books!!

(There is still time to enter in the drawing for a free copy of Japanese Design: Art, Aesthetics & Culture,
and “Comic Japan“.)

The next book that I’m am reviewing is a newly published book titled “Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen” by Abby Denson.

“Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen”

I will put the details of the free drawing for this book at the end of this post.

Ms. Denson is an American award-winning cartoonist who loves Japan and has visited often with her husband.

In this book, she describes with words and illustrations how to have an enjoyable trip to Japan.

If you are planning to visit Japan, have visited already or are currently here, this book will be very interesting and useful to you. In fact, even if you have no plans to actually visit Japan, you could still enjoy learning about Japan through the pages of this book.

Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen” is illustrated by the author on every page in comic-book style. It’s easy to understand, even if you have no knowledge of Japanese culture. Each chapter is prefaced with the definitions of numerous Japanese words and expressions to help your understanding further.

The last pages of the book also have useful website and smartphone app URLs.

Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen” can be purchased through Amazon here.

But, as I said above, Tuttle Books has agreed to give (given) one random visitor to my blog a free copy of this book.
