Email this review


It is a typical of the daily-life-in-the-land-of-genre about one of the countries which seems to attract this kind of visual coverage. The three parts of the book describe the life of the eleven year old girl from Kawaguchi, in the Tokyo vicinity, at home, at school and at holiday time, and they emphasize the familiar rather than analyze the country as a whole. There are one to three black and white photographs to a page and they tend to be more instructive than aesthetic.
