My name is Kathryn Hemmann. I study Japanese literature, and I translate short stories in my spare time.

Visitors to this site should note that the translations I have posted here have not been professionally edited. I encourage those who are intrigued by the work of the authors I have translated to seek out more of their stories using the Japan Foundation’s Translation Database.
