Translating Japanese Literature

What do you do when your professor tells you to find and translate a Japanese short story that hasn't already been translated into English?

Some of the Literary Agencies

It is interesting to me that in this day and age few of the literary agencies have websites. They do, of course, have email. Please see the FAQ on the SCBWI Japan page for contact information for the literary agents. That page is meant for children's literature authors/translators, but I believe the agencies are the same.
