    Some people take photos, but artist Betty Reynolds captures memories with her paintbrush and watercolors."Clueless in Tokyo" provides an outsider's take on everyday life in Japan's capital city--a place where vending machines talk, toilets can be terrifying, and centuries-old festivals unfold against a backdrop of space-age architecture. During the seven years Reynolds lived in Japan, she filled thirty sketchbooks with everything that caught her eye. Whether it's fashion, food, sport, transport, seasonal rituals, or Japanese pastimes, each vibrant sketch is a delight, and Reynolds' witty hand-lettered captions in both Japanese and English provide an entertaining resource for beginning learners of Japanese. A perfect introduction to Japan and Japanese culture, this edition contains many new illustrations as well as the Japanese script for key words and phrases. Travelers and students alike will embrace "Clueless in Tokyo" as a charming and insightful souvenir to be treasured.
