By Christine Mari Inzer.
Born in Tokyo to a Japanese mother and an American father in 1997, Christine Mari Inzer spent her early years in Japan and relocated to the United States in 2003. The summer before she turned sixteen, she returned to Tokyo, making a solo journey to get reacquainted with her birthplace.
Through illustrations, photos, and musings, Inzer documented her journey exploring the cutting-edge fashions of Tokyo's trendy Harajuku district, the renowned Tsukiji fish market, and the ancient city of Kyoto. As she shares the trials and pleasures of travel from one end of a trip to the other, Inzer introduces the host of interesting characters she meets and offers a unique—and often hilarious—look at a fascinating country and an engaging tale of one girl rediscovering her roots.
A book for comic lovers that presents a unique look at modern-day Japan through a young woman's eyes.
