For upper beginners of Japanese and higher.

Learn Japanese vocabulary while listening to the stories of Momotaro and Usagi to Kame (Tortoise and the Hare).

Both stories are presented in four ways:

  • Story read slowly
  • Story read line by line, followed by vocabulary in Japanese and English 
  • Story read at normal speed 
  • Finally, the story read in English to cement your understanding 

This audiobook was designed to be enjoyed without the need of any written material. However, a PDF with the stories is included.

Momotaro: Momotaro is, perhaps, the most famous Japanese folktale. An old couple raise a baby found within a giant peach. This Momotaro grows up to lead a party of animals (monkey, dog, and pheasant) against the terrible oni monsters. 

Usagi to Kame: This is the well-known Aesop's fable of the tortoise and the hare. You know the story. Now, understand it in Japanese!

Here's to your Japanese!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
