    Long-awaited by teachers and students, Read Real Japanese Fiction presents short works by six of today’s most daring and provocative Japanese writers. The spellbinding world of Hiromi Kawakami; the hair-raising horror of Otsuichi; the haunting, poignant prose of Banana Yoshimoto; even the poetic word-play of Yoko Tawada – whatever a reader’s taste, he or she is sure to find something of.   So if you where to read a Japanese book from those times you would start on the top right corner of the page and read downwards. Nowadays, the Japanese have adopted the Western way of reading and writing, so it has become the same as our way of reading, but some magazines and books still write in a way the way that you have to change the pages.

    If you are serious about learning to read real Japanese material though, you will most likely be studying a lot more outside of class than most of your classmates. I highly recommend classes for those that are in a situation where they are available. Hello:) So I can read Katakana, Hiragana and I'm about N5 level with vocabulary, kanji and grammar. I bought this book 'Taketori Monogatari: The Tale of the Bamboo-Cutter' after watching the Studio Ghibli film version to improve my reading skills.

    Read real Japanese fiction: short stories by contemporary writers edited by Michael Emmerich, narrated by Reiko Matsunaga. Six short stories in vertical text with translations of the complex passages, accompanied by CD with audio narrations performed by a professional actress. Japanese. We hope this innovation will help you learn how to read and write Japanese as quickly and painlessly as possible. From Unit 6 the basic conversations and dialogues are given in kana and a restricted number of kanji. Students who apply themselves diligently to the study of the Japanese script should be able to learn the kanji.
