Hi, KevinS-san. by KevinS » Sat Jan 09, 2021 11:24 pm I like these poems. Thank you very much. These poems are from Manyoushuu (まんようしゅう, 萬葉集, or 万葉集). It is the oldest anthology in Japan. Scholars have translated it into English and the translations must be correct as a study. But, are they enough a...

I can't see my wife afar.
Isn't that because Mt. Izami is mortally high?
I can't see Yamato, why?
Isn't that because Yamato is very far?

Re: [TRANSL. NOT PD] Journey to The West - Wu Cheng'en

Don't feel the pity. Tang Sanzang tried the journey to the West to take the Budda's scripures nine times. But he got eaten nine times by Sha Wujing. (This story is Tang Sanzang's the tenth atempt.)
