Through short biographies of thirty famous Japanese people belonging to different fields (history, art, literature, comics, politicians, sports, business), the student will learn about the history of Japan, while reading some very interesting texts. The aim of this book is to reach reading comprehension level 3 of JLPT. This is why grammar explanations and vocabulary for this level are included. 

Apart from the texts, the book includes different questions for reading comprehension that the student can answer and check after, since the answers are included in the book. This book includes long texts, which is really useful to get used to read in Japanese. In addition, elementary and basic kanji do not include furigana because students should already know them in case they are using this material. The most difficult words are translated at the end of each text. 

This book for intermediate reading has an appendix including the vocabulary translated into English.
