All about Kaoruko Himeno

A very talented Japanese author

I would like to introduce one of Japan's finest authors, KAORUKO HIMENO.
It is regrettable that currently in Japan, her work is not necessarily evaluated fairly. This is because she tries to create a humorous composition for the readers by putting emphasis on humor. Among the old-fashion-minded Japanese literally circle, her style of writing is not considered academic. She is not afraid to experiment and thus her writing style is bold and rich in variation. She weaves both the sad and jocular side of human nature in her works, but the theme severely criticizes the present Japanese society.

So come on and check her out !
