I really like this book because it contains a lot of traditional Japanese funny stories. Although they are all interesting, they are not necessarily funny. So you might not feel “LOL”throughout the reading but I’m sure you will be amused by the small wit hidden in the simple language. I would recommend this book.
Unlike the other explanatory books I have read so far, this story has some interesting plot lines. Although the story could easily happened in any other context, I enjoyed this book. I would recommend reading it just for a change, but for those of you who want to target books specifically link to Japanese culture or classic tales, maybe you can skip this.
This short story is about how wind and sun were having a little competition. The content is very easy but it is quite interesting. It is a very quick read I don’t think anyone would encounter any problems with it. However I would suggest people to read something more closely related to Japanese tradition since this tale is globally known.
I really like this book because it introduced Sushi in every dimension. Sushi’s history, how to make sushi and different kinds of sushi are all demonstrated here. There are a lot of pretty illustrations and drawings of sushi. I highly recommend reading this book with a full stomach otherwise you would become really hungry by craving all kinds of sushi.
I read the story fairly fast. It talked about Sakura’s progression in Japan. The story depicted a vivid societal image with simple language. I found it very interesting to see how Sakura is gradually coming to North and blooming along the season. The pictures are very nice too!
The language is very delicate and poetic, I would highly recommend this book because you would learn a lot but would not be bothered by the complexity of grammar. After reading this book, I had some urge visiting Japan and seeing Sakura!
