If the Shoe Fits -A Newsei’s Guide to Japanese Wisdom Product Description:

A Loving, Light-Hearted Look at the Rich Backstory of Japanese-American Culture

Why is it bad form to poke your chopsticks into a bowl of rice? Why do we eat mochi at New Year’s? Why shouldn’t you cut your fingernails at night? In If the Shoe Fits, Rev. Clarence Higa unravels the hows and whys of Japanese customs and traditions from anpan to zukō for the benefit of what he calls “Newsei”—the generations of Japanese Americans born after their Issei and Nisei forbears.

Rev. Clarence Higa has an MA in Religion and a PD in Education from the University of Hawai‘i. He was a longtime special needs instructor with the Hawai‘i State Department of Education and today is Head Minister at the Seichiji Temple in Honolulu.
