An die Aliens in Japan / Book

An die Aliens in Japan
An die Aliens in Japan

Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

This book is aimed equally at those visiting Japan and those who enjoy Japanese food. For the uninitiated, this book is an introduction to the basic forms of behaviour in this foreign culture. Those who know Japan probably smile when they think back to the first time they visited Japanese acquaintances.
The book uses a typical visit to Japanese friends to explain how to bow and use chopsticks correctly, and to point out important things to observe at mealtimes. The focus here is on table manners.
This fun introduction to dealing with the Japanese is illustrated with many pictograms. “For Aliens in Japan” is finished in the Asian binding style. The book is pocket-sized (160 x 150 mm) and 128 pages long. A cardboard sleeve protects the book and holds it together.
