Overview

Katie is a young American girl living in present-day Tokyo. One day, as she walks her dog, she meets Keiko, a young Japanese girl, and her brother Kenji. Together they explore the city and its surroundings as they teach each other the customs of their respective countries. Whether dining on soba (spaghetti), studying kana (the alphabet), or dancing at the Obon festival, the Tokyo friends discover just how much their two culture differ - and how much they are alike. Vibrantly illustrated by the author, Tokyo Friends introduces young readers to Japanese traditions, customs, and the Languageuage by means of helpful English-Japanese glosses, which augment the delightful and lively narrative. Valuable as a beginner's guide to Japanese Languageuage and culture, Tokyo Friends is also an enchanting adventure for young readers.
