During a year spent in Japan on a personal quest to deepen her appreciation for such Eastern ideals as commitment and devotion, documentary filmmaker Karin Muller discovered just how maddeningly complicated it is being Japanese. In this book Muller invites the reader along for a uniquely American odyssey into the ancient heart of modern Japan. Broad in scope and deftly observed by an author with a rich visual sense of people and place, Japanland is as beguiling as this colorful country of contradictions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Japanland I really liked this author. Her narrative was full of human interest and people you could easily name as the villain when seen with understanding and insight to be heroic once the journey came to its end. I believe that the kindness of the people she met can be found throughout the world but never the strangeness of the adventure. Foreign? Exotic? Lunacy? Intractable? Hilarious? All of that. She's a rare bird.
