-- Your Gateway to Japanese Literature --

arigatai in Japanese

“Arigatai” roughly translates to “thankful”, and being thankful for everything around us is an important aspect of Japanese culture.
    The simplest word in Japanese for “Thank you” is ありがとう “Arigatou”, which comes from the same origin as “Arigatai”.

    At Arigatai Books, we strive to produce books that readers will be thankful for, not just in terms of having these books available, but also in terms of being thankful about the culture and history that is a fundamental part of them.
