In 1992 Japan's Grown Prince Naruhito completed a memoir about his life and experiences at the University Oxford (1983-85). This engaging and informative account of English university life, customs, and mores as seen from the perspective of a young Japanese student, albeit Japan's heir to the Imperial throne, is a most welcome contribution to cross-cultural studies.
