Cheltenham is a key Festival to hear from major Japanese writers, with authors including Sayaka Murata, Genki Kawamura, Masatsugu Ono and Kanako Nishi appearing on our stages in recent years.

Thanks to a continued partnership with The Japan Foundation, this year is no different and while travel from Japan remains restricted, we instead present a digital showcase of two stellar Japanese writers to watch: Kikuko Tsumura (There’s No Such Thing as an Easy Job) and Keiichiro Hirano (At the End of the Matinee). Interviewers: Victoria Young and Suzi Feay.
