Rowing In Japanese

Earlier this month rowing historian Bill Miller announced on his great site that Chris Dodd’s brilliant book The Story of World Rowing, published in 1992, has now been translated into Japanese by Akihiro Sakakibara. The Japanese version is published by Tohoku University Press.

Coincidentally, I received an e-mail from Hélène in France, one of the loyal readers of this blog (whom I have mentioned before – again, thank you, Hélène) where she points me in the direction of the Japanese magazines/comics called manga. The author Hidenori Hara has published series called Regatta [Japanese title: Regatta Kimi to Ita Eien]. The Japanese TV has also dramatized Regatta, and you can read more about it by clicking here.
