" Not comprehensive but I learned things. If I were giving a kid several books about Japan, this would be one of them. " said.

" It had alot of information, and it makes me want to visit Japan now. There were also some humorous things. " said.

" What a fun way to learn about Japan! All elementary schools, which do country reports, need this book as it will be a great reference about Japan. The history and culture is imparted in a way all kids (both young and old) can learn while enjoying the story. Rebecca Otowa has done an incredible job including so many diverse cultural and historical aspects in a short colorful and easy to read book! " said.

" Kids will definitely love this colourful book full of beautiful drawings! It feels like absorbing the Japanese culture just by reading the experiences of Dan with Murata family, to be honest. Although I already knew about the tea ceremonies, art of ninja, bowing, etc, thanks to my ample and serious reading of various mangas available, this simple book still managed to awe-struck me with the elegant culture of the Japanese.Highly recommended for kids! " said.

"This graphic diary of a fictional fifth grader’s visit to Japan is chock-full of interesting facts delivered in a most palatable format – those who are wild to know more about Japan will eat it up. I did find it a little hard to believe that the parents of this fifth grader were ok sending him off to Japan for four months on his own. It would have been even better if this had actually happened. Any real kids out there who have had this sort of experience? Photographs of Japan/events/people would also have been welcome additions." said.

"This was a brief, fun, easy introduction to Japanese culture for kids interested in learning more about the country and pining to visit. A short comic journal from Dan, a fictional fifth grade American kid who spends four months living with a Japanese family, it offers brief facts and background for a bunch of topics kids would find interesting, including school days, cuisine, calligraphy, manga, ninja, and holiday traditions, as well as some more "educational" topics like rice farming. In addition, there are some hands on activities, too, such as origami and I particularly liked the recipe for onigiri (rice balls) that kids can make at home! Still, this book would probably be most interesting to those kids who are already smitten with Japan and crave learning anything about it. The art is kid-like and colorful, as Dan writes little vignettes of his experiences during his four months, shared in emails home and journal entries as the seasons change and he experiences more topics.

Dan and his Japanese host family, the Muratas, however, don't have much personality by themselves, Dan is just an "average kid" placeholder for readers to imagine themselves in his shoes. There is no background revealing exactly why Dan is spending the first semester of fifth grade in Japan, for instance, only that he loved it and "will be back!" That was my feeling upon returning from my own Japan trip myself, though of course I was not able to go back in grade school. My Awesome Japan Adventure doesn't offer much in depth information on Japan, but should be helpful for any grade schoolers interested in Japanese culture and some hands on activities too.

" Otowa created a children's book on Japan without getting bogged down in details. It also has activities to keep kids busy. Highly recommend for kids between 7 and 12 (or so). " said.
