Literature in Japan

Japanese literature has produced some extraordinary masterpieces enjoyed around the world. Many questions have been raised on how the Japanese have been so utterly creative in the development of their stories and tales. The debate continues as some of the scariest books and most insightful writings still continue to originate in Japan.


A lot of ESL teachers travel with the intention of writing about their experiences. We have one staff member at Teaching in Asia who wrote a book while working overseas. Literature clubs abound in Japan and will give you new methods of writing and developing content. Modern translations of Japanese classics can be found in bookstores around the country.


Teaching in Asia encourages teachers to read at least 1 local translation for every 2 or 3 western books. This will give them a sense of balance while giving them a broader outlook on the world and Japanese culture in particular.
