Zen Attitude (1998)

"You can't find a better guide to the mean streets of Japan than Rei Shimura. From a Buddhist temple in Kamakura to the nightclubs of Tokyo's trendy Roppongi districts, she leads us on a tense journey across terrain shaken by cross-cultural tremors and rifts between old and new ways. An excellent new series from a very talented writer."
