Japan has a way of thinking that is just . . . different. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Urawaza - Secret Japanese Tips. Urawaza is a Japanese word for secret lifestyle tricks and techniques. Here are some examples of the wisdom found in this book:
- Want to turbocharge your sled? Spray the bottom with nonstick cooking spray.
- Can't find someone to water your plants while you're away? Place the plant on a water-soaked diaper, so it slowly absorbs water over time.
- Want to make stale coffee taste fresh again? Add a few grains of salt and nuke it for one minute.
The subject of popular TV shows and numerous books in Japan, these unusually clever solutions to everyday problems have never before been published in English - until now! Urawaza collects more than 100 once-secret tricks, offering step-by-step directions and explanations in an eye-catching package as unconventional as its contents. Could this be the Ninja version of Martha Stewart? We think . . . yes.
