Colan (datapanik) | 3 comments I can find the short story "Fountains in the Rain" by Mishima quite easily, in English, on the net but haven't been able to find it in the original "Japanese". Does anyone know of a link to where I might get it?

Shawn (shawnb) You don't need to quote the word Japanese.

Colan (datapanik) | 3 comments Simply a habit...I am so used to doing so to "flag" the distinction between English, Romanji, Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji, (and Japanese in general) for students that I do it automatically. Hopefully no one took offence.

Evelyn | 2 comments Amazon has a website in Japanese; there's a link at the bottom of their web page. I've ordered from Japan without problems.

Colan (datapanik) | 3 comments Thank you! It appears that this short story is now in public domain so I was hoping that it floating around the net somewhere for me to grab. If it wasn't, of course I would order it.
It's only around 6 pages in length.

Sean (hakubaka) | 14 comments Sorry, that should be Death in Midsummer, Patriot was one of the short stories I believe - it just hit me.

David | 22 comments Sorry - that's in English. I was replying to Sean more than Colan.
