Re: A word on Time Trained and Ranking

since I have lived in Tokyo before (and have become somewhat of a "foreign civil rights" activist on YouTube, in some ways).

I read the book also dealt with how he viewed Japan as a newcomer, and I think that particular aspect would just end up annoying me.
Why? If you're not Japanese, this is what everyone does. You've done it, if you've been to Japan. No-one turns up in a foreign country with a different culture and is instantly familiar with it all.
