Hikoichi : Japanese reader collection volume 1
Clay Boutwell and Yumi Boutwell (2013)
A collection of four short stories about the legendary, 'Hikoichi,' a young man who was known for his wisdom and mischievousness.
Each story is repeated three times; the first part breaks the story down into small sections with a vocabulary list on each page. The second part presents the story entirely in Furigana and the final section gives the English translation.
Clearly structured and presented, this resource provides useful reading practice for post beginners and intermediate level learners. At the back of the book is a link to download the MP3 for the stories.
