About the Book

CultureShock! Japan
will guide you through the confusion you will inevitably feel when moving to the Land of the Rising Sun. Peppered with personal anecdotes, this book gives practical advice on how to navigate Japan’s fascinating and complex culture with ease and what to expect at a typical izakaya with your fellow “salarymen” after a long day at work. Discover the best time to view sakura in full bloom in each prefecture and where the best ryokans are. Learn the do’s and don't’s when dining at someone’s home and the right way to eat sushi. So whether you require information on office etiquette or where to find a hot spring, CultureShock! Japan covers it all and help you enjoy your stay in the country.

About the Author

Raina Ong moved to Japan after graduating from university and has stayed there for almost a decade. She started as an assistant language teacher (ALT) on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) programme, but has hung up her teaching realia and is currently a Japan-focused travel writer. Having completed her tour of all 47 prefectures in Japan, her next goal is to visit all the islands and peninsulas in the country. Raina may have a slight obsession with travelling and it is not uncommon to find her miles from home chasing a harebrained travel whim.
