Japanese Literature

Welcome to the Japanese literature group!

The group is currently very small and quiet but we always welcome new members and would love the opportunity to discuss everything Japanese with you. Two of us have our own threads where we post and review every Japanese book we read as we read it. Perhaps you'd like to start your own thread as well!

In any case, feel free to discuss anything literature-related in Japan: fiction, poetry, drama and non-fiction from Japan and about Japan.
