Now tell us – did you ever like Japan? Do you know anything about its history, or just what you learned from television and anime, in general? That’s a good starting point, anyway.

Everything about shoguns, shogunates and all other forms of governance
The situation in Japan during World War II and after that
The most important battles between Japan and the United States of America
The fall of the Empire of Japan
Japanese politics
The catastrophic Japanese deflation that ruined the economy for decades on end
Japanese culture and what makes it so unique in the world
Valuable information on anime and manga as distinct avatars of Japanese culture
Tourism in Japan and why it is so important for the economic growth of the state

Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning.
