Alec Stern, a newly minted Yate graduate, is on assigment in Tokyo, staying with a Japanese family. Infatuated with Japan since he was small, he desperately wants to make this foreign place his own - and in the process, to distance himself from his ruptured past. In Tokyo he struggles to master Japanese ways in a series of sharp and funny vignettes. He also earns the trust and companionship of his Japanese family's infinitely patient and lonely mother; his hard boiled American boss; and Kiyoko Kawashima, a woman considered too old to be of interest to Japanese men, and whose beauty stuns Alec.
