Tokyo Vice

Just finished Jake Adelstein's book Tokyo Vice on his years as a reported for the Yomiuri, the Japanese language one not the English Daily Yomiuri.

A very interesting look at working on the police beat for a major newspaper. Adelstein is the only non-Japanese reporter to have been in the press club at the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.

I was clued into this one by Mark Schreiber's review in the Japan Times.

This is one I can recommend reading.

I was curious about Tokyo Vice after hearing Jake Adelstein on NPR's Fresh Air -- perhaps it's of interest to others well:

I'm looking forward to reading it when it arrives in my libary!
