"Born in Tokyo to a Japanese mother and an American father in 1997, Christine Mari Inzer spent her early years in Japan and relocated to the United States in 2003. The summer before she turned sixteen, she returned to Tokyo, making a solo journey to get reacquainted with her birthplace. Through illustrations, photos, and musings, Inzer documented her journey. In Diary of a Tokyo Teen, Inzer explores the cutting-edge fashions of Tokyo's trendy Harajuku district, eats the best sushi of her life at the renowned Tsukiji fish market, and hunts down geisha in the ancient city of Kyoto. As she shares the trials and pleasures of travel from one end of a trip to the other, Inzer introduces the host of interesting characters she meets and offers a unique -- and often hilarious -- look at a fascinating country and an engaging tale of one girl rediscovering her roots."--provided by Amazon.com.

A fun to read teen travel diary. If you ever wanted to visit Japan, this book gives you a glimpse into a few of the country's tourist destinations.

I usually enjoy memoirs/ autobiographical graphic novels, so this book is perfect for me. I liked the story, but I may have liked it better if it was drawn in standard comic book style rather than an illustration per page.
