Holiday Gift Idea for the Japanophile on Your List

If you are wondering what to buy that Japanophile on your holiday gift recipient list I suggest you consider Japanland-- A Year in Search of Wa by Karin Muller. I had the university order the book for the library and just started reading it this morning. It's an easy, entertaining read with humor and delightful insights into modern Japanese culture. There is also a 4-hour documentary made by the author that was show on public tv. That's the next thing on my wish list for the library.
