Japan-An A-Z Guide is your updated guide to living, working and traveling in Japan-or doing business with the Japanese. With over 70 alphabetical listings, the book will guide you through all aspects of Japanese life-from catching bullet trains and office etiquette to eating sushi and karaoke singing Written by one-time Australian Executive Woman of the Year, the book draws on examples from the author's own experience-and is a practical and personal approach. It is an easy to read essential guide to dealing successfully with the Japanese in business, day to day living and play. Although first published some years ago when the author lived in Tokyo, most of the information (apart from regulatory details which are always changing) is as relevant today as it was then-and Toshiya Ozaki, Professor of International Business at Rikkyo University, has contributed to this revised edition. It is easy-to-read, with relevant facts, amusing anecdotes and case studies and you'll readily see the power of DeVrye's common sense approach. Presented in an easy to read format, with chapter headings, listed alphabetically, that you can readily refer to, you'll learn the basics of: A ccommodation, allowance & automobiles B anking, bowing and baseball C ommunication and useful phrases D eath, decisions and discretion... ...Z aibatsu and a zillion other tricks for new players
