I’ve been living in Japan for about two years and a half now, and have been feeling like I should know more about the history of this place, since I’m probably gonna stick around for a while. So I thought it could be nice to start a topic on Japanese history books, in order to combine Japanese reading practice with history learning.
If anyone has any book recommendations, or want to share their journey as they learn about Japanese history, or just plain interesting history facts, this is the place for it! I recently bought myself a ビジュアル図鑑 (illustrated reference book) on Japanese history, so I’ll be sharing some of that as I read along.
Let’s get good at Japanese history! ^^
