Welcome to Yomikai!

I’m a Japanese to English translator. My translation site is here.

I find reading a fantastic way to keep up my language skills, and I love to read for fun, so this blog details my adventures in reading Japanese books.

The main reason I want to read in Japanese is that there are so many stories that haven’t made it into English, and I can’t help feeling we may be missing out. Instead of waiting for books to be translated and reach our shelves (or not), I think it’s time to sally forth… I’m focusing mainly on sci-fi and fantasy, but I often foray into other genres.

The books I’d love to translate:
Two Thousand Seven Hundred Summers and Winters, by Hiroshi Ogiwara
The Playground of the Gods, by Natsu Miyashita
Night Train, by Tomihiko Morimi
