"Stranger in a Homeland' chronicles one woefully unqualified American's time spent living and working in Japan. With no money, no plan, and no ability to speak Japanese beyond a handful of phrases half-remembered from childhood anime, adventure and disaster are inevitable. Through the author's misadventures—and dozens of high-quality photographs—you can experience what it's like to start over from square one, and immerse yourself in Japan's rich, vibrant, and often baffling culture.
