Hitching Rides with Buddha

(2005)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Take a humorist from the Great White North - one part Bob and Doug McKenzie, the other Bill Bryson - feed him lots of sake, and set him loose hitchhiking his way through polite Japanese society. The result is one of the warmest and funniest travelogues you've read. It had never been done before. Not in four thousand years of Japanese recorded history had anyone followed the Cherry Blossom Front from one end of the country to the other. Nor had anyone hitchhiked the length of Japan. And, as Ferguson learns, it illustrates that to travel is better than to arrive.
