A Wild Haruki Chase: Kobe Program

A Wild Haruki Chase: How the World Is Reading and Translating Murakami

Kobe Program

Along with Tokyo and Sapporo programs, in Haruki’s hometown Kobe, we are going to organize a symposium inviting translators and writers from South Korea, Canada, Czech, and Hong Kong. The venue is Kobe High School, where Haruki Murakami spent his adolescence.
Why don’t you participate in a ‘Wild Haruki Chase,’ an adventure to search for unknown appeal of Murakami’s literature with comparison of ‘Haruki boom’ in each country?
