Hitching Rides with Buddha: Travels in Search of Japan by Will Ferguson

Canadian writer and humourist Will Ferguson offers up one of the strangest - and most delightful - travel books about Japan. 

Hitching Rides With Buddha takes on the challenge of following the cherry blossoms from south to north in Japan -- all using the rare transportation mode of hitching a ride.

Really this is a collection of great stories about the characters he meets on the journey -- and the kindness of strangers. It's a glimpse into a Japan not often revealed by Western writers.

It's a fun read and a great story of adventure and exploration of Japan bottom to top.
