A tiny work by MURAKAMI, HARUKI - 03-02-2018, 03:04 PM

This is a tiny work by "MURAKAMI,HARUKI" which will not be translated to any foreign languages.

Because the theme of the book is "回文:KAIBUN;reversible sentence or a word game" in Japanese.

Do you know the KAIBUN ? It is known as "palindrome" in English like as "Was it a car or a cat I saw?".

"マタタビ浴びた、タマ:MATATABI ABITA, TAMA; TAMA (usual name of a cat) bathing MATATABI (actinidia)" is the title of this work.

Do you know MATATABI by which cats are addicted madly?

MURAKAMI composed 44 KAIBUNs in the new year holyday of 2000 for his own pleasure.

Japanese learners often play Japanese word game SHIRITORI. KAIBUN is more challenging game to learn Japanese. Try !

(By the way, I made an English palindrome "I am Mai(Japanese girls name)".)
