Read Real Japanese

Well-known modern Japanese short stories. Original Japanese on the right. Direct, line-by-line translation on the left. After something appears more than once or twice it will no longer be translated, so I have to read the real text. Cool way to study huh? Fellow Japanese learners: you can probably find it online.

I’m currently reading “Kamisama” by Kawakami Hiromi

  1. I bought it in a bookstore in the “Joinus” side of Yokohama station. I think it was about 2500 yen. There was also one in the same style that was essays, rather than fiction, by contemporary Japanese authors. Good luck!
