This book is a good guide for foreigners living in Japan who would be writing letters during their stay in Japan. It has various examples for letters ranging from letters of greeting to employment application letters. Since spoken Japanese is different from written Japanese, this book gives a good introduction on how native Japanese write formal letters.
Excellent guide to writing letters for a variety of situations. I purchased a used copy some years ago. Although my Japanese level has progressed quite a bit since my initial purchase, I find myself turning to this book often when writing new year's greetings, interview requests and letters and emails for a variety of academic and personal situations.
