I recently read a book about Japan, Pretty Good Number One: An American Family Eats Tokyo. I laughed, nodded in agreement and was in love with it almost instantly. This book also made me eyes water, it spoke to me on many level you guys.
I seriously need to go back to Japan again! Half through this book I think this guy talks way too detailed about Japanese food, where is the discussion about Mount Fuji and the likes, only to realize he is a food critique. Silly me.
This book for someone who loves japan, going to japan, went to japan and doesn’t know anything about japan, but willing to risk to fall in love with it.
Matthew writes in first person perspective and his deep love for Japanese food. My favorite person of this book is his daughter, Iris, who is going to celebrate her 21 birthday in a karaoke parlor in japan. Sounds like a fantastic plan Iris. Ohayo!
