Australia in English and Japanese

Japanese edition of Peter Carey True History of the Kelly GangI wrote Friday, January 26, 2007 in Australian Authors Abroad for Australia Day:
... for Australia Day I created Amazon store of books about Australia ... in French and ... German.
That worked okay, so I did one in English and Japanese as well. Japanese is a lot harder than French and German as the Author's names as well as the book titles are translated. But I managed to find Peter Carey's True History of the Kelly Gang as ケリー・ギャングの真実の歴史 by ピーター ケアリー and Patrick White's Voss as ヴォス by パトリック ホワイト.

While it may not be great literature, I felt obliged to include Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter in the English version.

The Australian Embassy in Tokyo wrote to say they have the Australian Resource Centre, with books, journals, CDs, and videos on Australia.
