With delightful cartoons by the Japanese artistt-illustrator, Masakazu Kuwata.

The "man in the moon"-who isn't a man at all, but a rabbit. Charming hotels with no public dining rooms and no private baths. Attractive gift packages so meticulously wrapped in paper proclaiming the poor quality of the contents. After chuckling through this book, the reader will find he has become effortlessly informed on the history, houses, food, clothing, customs, language, and amusements of Incredible Japan.
