Hello Kitty Tells All


Here's a book I never thought I'd see: Hello Kitty's bilingual guide to Japanese culture. Check out this interesting review by Nathalie-Kyoko Stucky at the Japan Subculture Research Center's blog, and see how Hello Kitty (whose last name is really White, who knew?) explains Japanese funeral etiquette among other topics.
As frivolous as this cover looks, this book might be a good introduction for foreigners wanting to learn about Japanese life while reinforcing their basic grasp of the language.

And no, it wasn't really written by Hello Kitty, but by Koji Kuwabara.
