A Year In Japan by Kate T. Williamson

A Year In Japan

Kate Williamson was a Harvard Grad who received a fellowship to travel abroad for a year, the condition being that the country and culture, must be different from one’s own.  She chose Japan.  An illustrator, Williamson chronicled her year abroad by putting together this charming little book, which features vignettes of experiences, places and items she thought worth noting.  There’s not much writing, and the book is filled with Williamson’s own artful images, so it reads more like a picture book with descriptions of the scenes.  From socks to sumo wrestlers, Williamson presents colorful snapshots of a nation from the perspective of an American abroad.
