A great site for Japanese reading material
http://www.nihongo-yomu.jp/ is part of the Tadoku group of resources for language learners that I mentioned in an earlier post. I gave the wrong URL so I have posted it here again. The stories are easy, interesting, delightfully illustrated (reminds me Le Petit Prince), include furigana for the Kanji, and are free. Please visit, if you are a Japanese learner.
It would be great if some of our members could record these and put them into our Japanese Library at LingQ or at least some of them. I will ask Prof. Sakai.
