Story Land in Classical Japanese

This series is aimed at students of the Japanese language and viewers interested in classical literature. It provides easy introductions to celebrated classical works that are commonly included in school textbooks and familiar to virtually all Japanese. The works are first presented in their original classical form to give viewers an immediate feel for the sound of the language. Then they are explained and rendered in modern language, with the worldview they embody introduced through scenic set designs and video imagery. The program is also intended for non-Japanese students residing in Japan who are studying classical Japanese.
