Our intrepid hero, Martin, a Canadian of Polish descent who lived in Tokyo for 10 years, takes us by the hand, and with his Irish sidekick, Sean, leads us through the wonders of this fascinating place — not the wonders that most people are familiar with, not the economic miracle and the bright lights — no, he takes us through a far quirkier, but at the same time far more human, land of wonky beer machines on hot sultry nights in downtown Tokyo.

Above all, the book is extremely funny and at times moving, with plenty of dialogue, lively, fast-moving action accompanied by many photos and graphics that add to the feeling of realism.

It is part cultural guide, part anthropological tract, guiding us through the mass of Japanese uniqueness and gruczkowski that, in fact, we are all just, well, people — and part modern day Don Quixote, discoursing on issues of the day. Just after that my son asked me how many languages I actually know and one woman felt urge to know if I speak Czech.

Facts about Japan are never presented in a descriptive form — they are discovered through the adventures of the protagonist and his friends, or in conversations with other characters, both foreigners and Japanese.
