Reading Japan is a program of reading short stories from Japan.This time, the short story we’ll be introducing is ‘Changing to Short Sleeves’ by Yamamoto Fumio: Part 2. I devoted myself to my new job at a department store to get my ex-boyfriend out of my mind. I worked straight through weekends and holidays. There, I spent two years working myself to the bone. Then, he appeared in front of me and asked to restore our relationship.
