I would recommend this book to any first semester Japanese students. Beans are everywhere in Japanese cuisine, and this book helps familiarize the reader with the various uses. There are general recipes for several ingredients like tofu, and the book even has cute pictures of koji fungi! The kanji used in the book would also be useful to know for anyone looking to buy ingredients at a store without English labels.
I recommend this book to 日本語一年生. It does brief introduction to the city subway system, and shows lots of lively situations in the train, like how do passengers look differently in the morning, at noon, and at night. It’s a book easy to read and enjoy.
I highly recommend this book to Japanese first semester students. It introduces both the sakura culture and Japanese geography. There are a lot of interesting details like お花見 and that Japan is divided into 沖縄，九州，四国，本州，and 北海道. Vocabularies and kanjis in this book are very easy, and the book is a good practice for beginners.
I recommend this book, because the story is really interesting. It is about a competition between wind and sun. They are trying to find out which one of them is more powerful. Although there are some new words and kanji that we have not learned yet, you can still get the meaning from the pictures on the book. I just learned Japanese for about two month, and I can understand the whole book. So it is not that hard. Also, by reading it, you are not only reading an interesting story, but also learning new vocabularies and kanji.
This book is very interesting. There were many kanji that I didn’t know, but they were not hard to understand. I got to know about the Japanese wedding ceremony. It is very interesting.
I definitely recommend this book to others. The book itself and the drawings are all very interesting. If you wanna know about some Japanese traditions, this book is easy to understand for beginners. The book also talks about some cultural norms. It was very exciting that I can understand most parts of the book even though I just began Japnese for not more than 2 months.
I love this book, it almost brought me into tears. This is a very romantic story that addresses how people face death. Everyone is a corpse in progress, as we will all die someday. But all these fantasized folktales make death less intimidating and make people feel more spiritually supported.
I enjoyed reading this funny book. Both the language and storyline are easy to follow. However, I always wonder why storybooks portray animals like alligators and snakes in a negative way. Many rare animals that look aggressive actually do no harm to humans unless people attack them intentionally. I think this is a common misconception that should be corrected.
This book is easy to read because we’ve learned all the grammars. Although there are some kanjis we haven’t learned, we still can guess the meanings from the picture. The story is interesting but kind of sad. If you have a dog or cat, I don’t recommend this book because you will definitely cry!
I would like to recommend this story to my classmates, because it has a very good plot that keeps you curious, and it has a pretty good ending that makes you look back on your own life and be grateful. It might be a little confusing in the beginning, but you’ll get the story in the end, and the grammar and vocabulary isn’t too difficult.
