Viewing Japanese Web Sites in Japanese


Cross-Platform, Without Special Software

http://www.lfw.org/shodouka/

Go to this site, and type in the URL of the Japanese
site you wish to view. This site then draws that site for you while you
wait. Developed and maintained by Ka-Ping Yee, who’s been hounded by several
special interest groups for years, who objected to this free flow of Japanese
language without mediation. Slow but useful.

    The
    End of the World
    This site was the first one I had seen on Murakami,
    and had collected interesting material on him. It looks, however, that
    it is no longer online. I’ll look into this to make sure, but I downloaded
    a lot of the material from this site a couple years ago. If the site is
    indeed cyberdust, I will post the material myself.

    Murakami Ryu

    Do you confuse Murakami Haruki with Murakami Ryu? If you do, that means
    you haven’t read one of them. VisitTokyo
    Decadence
    , Murakami Ryu’s pay-as-you-go Website, and you’ll never confuse
    them again.
