Stefhen Bryan's experiences and perspective on Japan have been continuously forming and morphing since that point. An outspoken advocate of the country, Bryan has nonetheless never refrained from calling out the Japanese government - and society in general - on controversial issues such as the gender divide, excessive work hours, and especially the sexual inhibitions and peculiarities that define the nation's relationships.
Now touring and promoting 'Black Passenger Yellow Cabs' in the USA for a limited time, Bryan offers a unique perspective on a homogenus, conflicted society from the background of an experienced Western traveller.
Wherever he steps up to speak, the audience is simultaneously excited and shocked at hearing his specific brand of insight into Japan. As much as he enjoys delivering these insights, nothing will please the author more than to return to his adopted homeland in the latter half of 2011.
