Recently noticed this short, two page story by Dazai Osamu translated by Angus Turvill linked at the end of his wikipedia page, so I hope it's ok for me to link it here too. Originally published as Matsu in 1942, the narrative is similar to that of Schoolgirl.

No problem, another great short story available in PDF is Izumi Kyoka's The Saint of Mt. Koya, which is available here -

Currently reading the latest volume of Monkey Business, (3), which is available now on kindle, not sure if it's available for other e-readers?.

Might be some others on PDF if you click through the online translations label at the bottom of this post.

Cheers for the comment!.
