|Plot Summary of 31 Months in Japan: The Building of a Theme Park|
|"One day in the summer of 1998, Lorna Collins stepped off a train into a sea of black heads and realized she was foreign and in Japan to stay. She and her husband, Larry, had relocated to build Universal Studios Japan in Osaka. 31 Months in Japan — the Building of a Theme Park is their account of that experience.
As they were Southern Californians, the customs were awkward at first, but eventually they established effective working relationships and personal ones as well."
Lorna Collins, Resident Scholar
