Thomas Joel - Tuesday, May 01, 2018

As the CEO of Walk Japan, Paul Christie is a pioneer of small group tours venturing deep into Japanese society and culture. He recently had some kind words to say about one of our upcoming titles, 'Amy's Guide to Best Behavior in Japan: Do It Right and Be Polite!'

"Amy's Guide to Best Behavior in Japan is a long-needed succinct, comprehensive, and easily understood guide to the mores of Japan.”

Thanks Mr. Christie, we coudn't agree more!
