Karin Muller set off to explore and immerse herself in Japanese culture. Having a black belt in Judo, she lived with a host family who’s head of household taught Judo. She practiced judo with him and how to be a Japanese housewife with his perfectionist wife, Yukiko.
While Karin failed at cooking and took brutal wallopings while practicing Judo, she succeeds at finding out about Japan’s culture and people.
Karin Muller brings the people, place and culture of Japan to life. I felt as if I was there with her, sharing her funny, laugh out loud moments, frustration, and awe. 4/5
