    Winner of the Edward Stanford Travel Memoir of the Year 2020
    How does a sushi bar explain a Japanese poem?
    Why do Japanese couples plan matching outfits for their honeymoon?
    Why are so many things in Japan the opposite of what we expect?
    After thirty-two years in Japan, Pico Iyer knows the country as few others can. In A Beginner's Guide to Japan, he dashes from baseball games to love-hotels and from shopping malls to zen temple gardens to find fresh ways of illuminating his adopted home. Playful and surreptitiously profound, this is a guidebook to a Japan few have ever seen before.
    'Rarely in any writing on Japan is provocation so elegantly and surgically performed' Financial Times
