    This is a nicely presented hardback book, with satisfying layout design, though one which is perhaps suited for readers who are absolutely new to Japanese culture I was already familiar with much of the content, and would ve preferred something withdepth Also, much of the writing is very surface level, as though the writers simply googled a topic and re phrased their findings with bland, unimaginative copy That being said, elegant prose isn t the selling point of a book like this it This is a nicely presented hardback book, with satisfying layout design, though one which is perhaps suited for readers who are absolutely new to Japanese culture I was already familiar with much of the content, and would ve preferred something withdepth Also, much of the writing is very surface level, as though the writers simply googled a topic and re phrased their findings with bland, unimaginative copy That being said, elegant prose isn t the selling point of a book like this it is one to be picked up for a few minutes, rather than one to capture the essence of Japanese life The photos are disappointingly mainly stock imagery, and sometimes not even relevant to the accompanying text, however they are generally tasteful It seems that this book was thrown together to ride the wave of interest in Japan due to the upcoming Olympics there, but regardless, this could definitely appeal to someone who is ignorant of what Japan has to offer It could be much better, but it could be much worse

    Did what I was hoping it would do, but didn t rise above to become an unexpected pleasure or an absolute favourite There was a fairly decent ratio of text to pictures I m not a big fan of the full page photo with 1 sentence kind of book , and I learned about many aspects of Japan This would have been a wonderful introduction to the topic, but I ve been boning up on it for my upcoming trip, and by the time I d finished the book, little was new to me So nice for beginners, but Japanophiles wil Did what I was hoping it would do, but didn t rise above to become an unexpected pleasure or an absolute favourite There was a fairly decent ratio of text to pictures I m not a big fan of the full page photo with 1 sentence kind of book , and I learned about many aspects of Japan This would have been a wonderful introduction to the topic, but I ve been boning up on it for my upcoming trip, and by the time I d finished the book, little was new to me So nice for beginners, but Japanophiles will learn little extra Note 5 stars amazing, wonderful, 4 very good book, 3 decent read, 2 disappointing, 1 awful, just awful I m fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve

    Be More Japan is a guide of Japanese culture and living It gives you a taste of how this magnificent country is, its history, values, traditions, etc I think is a guide that every person should read before traveling to Japan because it provides you a good picture of the country The layer out is gorgeous and it is a very informative book.
