Educational Manga

I read in the Time Out guide to Tokyo that some of the best Manga (Japanese comics) had been translated into English and were available in a bookshop in Shinjuku.

I thought I would try reading one as an experiment in Japanese culture. I have never been into comics or cartoons, perhaps because I had no access to a TV and therefore cartoons as a young child but I’m really enjoying learning about Japan through this medium!

So far I’ve read two books – one about food and one about Japanese pre-second world war history and thoroughly enjoyed both. I’m sure I’ll read many more – just the dilemma on electronic versions – the way I read most books these days – or paper versions – somehow nicer when art is involved.
