Japanese Classical Literature at Bedtime Podcast

Just as the title implies, Kasumi Kobayashi reads classical Japanese literature in a clear soft voice appropriate for bedtime. If old-fashioned Japanese isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry: some of the offerings are translated into modern Japanese. You can even hear what’s arguably the most famous piece of classical Japanese literature: The Tale of Genji.

Note: Kobayashi-san offers a warning – that though she reads in Standard Japanese (標準語), her mother tongue is Tosa dialect(土佐弁) and she occasionally fails to switch.
