I'm off to Japan in the spring and hoping to read quite a few Japanese novels before then.

So far I've read several by Murakawi, Who is Mr Satoshi by Jonathan Lee, have a couple by Liam Hearn on the to-read pile .. and that's it.

I'd like to explore some other Japanese writers. On the foreign literature thread I picked up a recommendation for The Makioka Sisters, which sounds great. Would love some more suggestions smile
