inchhigh samuraiRecommended for upper beginners and lower intermediates of Japanese.
NEWLY UPDATED WITH A BONUS STORY: Kaguya Hime (including MP3s of both stories)
FREE PDF and MP3s of the stories read by a native Japanese speaker–download link found on the last page. Listen while reading to develop listening comprehension, reading skills, and building vocabulary.

Inch-High Samurai: Read–in Japanese–how a tiny, yet very brave samurai manages to marry a princess.
Kaguya Hime: An old man finds a girl in a bamboo stalk and raises her as his own. It turns out, she is out of this world.
