One Liter of Tears (Aya’s Diary)

I finally found the book that i’ve been searching for months. Deep inside the Japanese section of the Kinokuniya Bookstore at Takashimaya, I found the translated version of Aya’s Diary.

Some of you may be familiar with the hit J-Dorama, One Liter of Tears, which accounts the life of a young girl, Aya Kito who suffered from spinocerabellar ataxia, a degenerative disease of the nervous system, and how she struggles daily to live her life to fullest to the very end till she passed away. A very heartwarming, yet heartbreaking story, as she accounts how her family cope with her disease and seeing them supporting her brightest daughter till the very end.

Aya Kito also wrote a diary accounting her personal life. Her diary was published by her mother and now i had the opportunity to read it in my own native language. Truly, anyone who have watched the drama series, would agree with me how blessed we are where our health is concerned. Looking back, it really made us realize the fragility of life and that some people can really find hope and comfort even in the grimmest of circumstances. Her positive outlook in life despite her condition would probably be why the majority who watched the series felt deeply touched by her courage.

To those who are a true fan of the series, its highly recommended to get a copy of this book at Kinokuniya.

  1. this sound stupid but, what city Kinokuniya bookstore is in and is it in Japan or US?

  2. Its in Singapore, Kinkuniya Bookstore at Orchard Road. They have a section selling Japanese materials, such as books and magazines.

  3. Hi! I have been trying to find this book for a very long time already. Can you please tell me what is the traslated language of this book? Is it in english? Because I only know how to read in English. And can you kindly tell me the ISBN of this book? Thanks a lot!

    By the way, I get to know this website from my friend. I asked for his help to find this book and he told me about this website, perhaps I can find some clues here.

  4. hi there. Yes its in english! the isbn is: 978-4-89684-495-5. Hope you find the book in Kino bookshop! Remember, its at takashimaya outlet, Japanese section.

  5. Hi! Ayanee is my idol because she’s very strong no matter what she have!…thanks Ayanee for your great advice! your 20 years dead but you are my big idol!

  6. thank you for this info.
    what does the level4 at the side means?
    how much is her diary anyway? (:

  7. I think level 4 would be the difficulty level of the english language. This book is for people who wish to improve their reading of the english language.

  8. hmm…i wonder if i could find that book somewhere in canada. i’d really love to have a copy of it. perhaps it’s online somewhere? unless you searched online and couldn’t find it either =(

  9. do you know if there is 1 liter of tears books at united states plus translation because i really want to get that book.

  10. you can purchase the book online on amazon jp. however, you’ll have to create an account even though you already have an account on any other amazon site. everything’s in japanese though, you can go to this website to guide you through if you don’t know how to read in japanese:

  11. is ridiculously expensive. The book is 1200 yen, but s/h costs are 3000 yen. I bought a copy off the Kinokuniya website for $16.80 +tax and shipping from the Costa Mesa store. It was $5 shipping or I could have waited for the SF Japantown store to order it but didn’t feel like waiting 2 weeks plus the trip down there.

  12. Bought mine from Kinokuniya (Liang Court branch) Singapore, taka branch was out of stock. Cost nearly double the orginal price (SGD 28.70) but think it’s well worth it. ISBN no. proved to be very useful cause all the bookshelves are in Japaneses.

  13. I’ve just wanted to go to Kinokuniya Singapore,but i can’t go there.
    So my mom’s friend will buy it for me.But,the problem is that she(my mum’s friend) can’t speak.But she can speak Chinese very well.So:
    If she want to go there,so she musts to go to Japanese section inside the Kinokuniya(Kinokuniya in Orchad Road in Takashimaya).And then i think she’ll ask to the information there for the book.What is the title of the book actually?I had searched “1 Liter Of Tears” in the bookweb Kinokuniya Singapore,but there are no results.

  14. Can you please scan it onto this website
    ive been wanting to read the book but i live in new york and i cant find it anywheree

  15. Could you, if possible, give me a copy of it?
    I’ve been wanting to read a good translated book of Aya’s diary.
    It’s the only book I’ve been looking for, for almost 3 years now. lol I know its kinda weird but I really want to read it >.<

  16. sad with aya..but she so struggle in her life..i hope i can be like her

  17. I really really want to buy this book (english translated version) but everywhere i look online i can’t find it. can you please help me find it. It is really really important to me, i don’t know why… but it really really is.

    ~~~Thank you so much


  18. Do you know where to find a copy of this book that you have like off the internet or somewhere in the United States? Where did you get your copy? Thank you so much

  19. 1 litre of tear is really sad I don’t know why such a terrible disease could occur to a girl aged 15. In the drama of it, it showed a boy aged 10 who had that disease. Is there a cure or reason for it nowadays?

  20. hi there, I suppose the translated version one is already sold all over the countries in kinokuniya if there is one in your city since i have already found one in Sydney Kinokuniya. btw, i just bought it 3 days ago :p

    #Hinamori Amu
    theres no any possible cure found yet until they are able to find the chromosomes or genes or whatever it is which causes the disease and replace them with the healthy one though it is actually against the human moral. well i dont care anyway about the law or blablabla. they sooner or later must find the cure for this anyhow

  21. Hi do you know if they still have anymore that are in english like the one u have? b/c i really want one but i can’t find any here….in where i live….

  22. Im sure they have more copies of the book. I would highly suggest that you contact kinokuniya to direct you to their japanese branch and request for the availability of the book.

  23. OH icic.. but where can i contact the Kinokuniya Bookstore to request for the book?….. sorry for troubling u…..

  24. Hi, I myself am searching for the book, by any chance would you happen to know of another way of buying it? Maybe through online??

  25. Hi, i’ve read allllllllllll comments and im wondering if its possible to get the book w.o buying it online or overseas in english in australia,NSW.

  26. Man, I wish I could get a copy of this book . . but I don’t think they sell it here in Canada . . anybody know?

  27. hey … plz tell me from where u get it in english ?? i would do anything to get it plz…. :/ i keep searching it in english

  28. does anyone know if they sell it in any japanese book store?
    or is it in a specialty book store?

  29. I wanted to order this book from but my jaw totally dropped when I saw the shipping price ;-; Over ยฅ3,000 to England Dx

    If anyone does find a japanese book store, it would be a good idea to ask them whether they can order the book for you.
    There is a japanese store in Piccadilly Circus, London that specialises in selling japanese food, among other things like books…
    I went there a couple of months ago but I wasn’t looking for 1 Litre of Tears…
    Apparently, if you can’t find the book you’re looking for, they can order it for you in Japan, but I don’t know how much it’ll cost…

  30. How about ordering from me. My local bookstore has it. I can ship it to you if you want. Just drop me an email if you are really interested

  31. hi i love in melbourne australia and was wondering if i can find the book anywhere near me…China town perhaps?? they have death note so they might have this…im so desperate…but i dont want to buy it over the internet…any help?

  32. if you are in NSW u can find the book at Kinokuniya in city. It’s the one at george street. Anyway, I’m writing the english translation in my block, check it out! its for those who aint able to get the book in english version, hope its helpful ^^

  39. i’ve been searching for days in some of the bookstores here in our city yet im still not able to find that book. is there any way i can buy it? i think it’s going to be very expensive if i buy it online. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  40. This is for me, the other best memoir next to Anne Frank’s “Diary of a Young Girl.” If only they could have an international release of this book so that I can read it without going to another country to buy a copy of this.

  41. Hi, I’m emotionated when I read your entry, you have the book in English!! I want this!! But I live in Spain and isn’t posible buy it T_T

  42. *YAAAAAAAAAY* got this book today =D
    and i live in germany … so it’s possible to get it when you really want it =)
    you just have to be a little inventive =D
    first read this blog and thought: OMG I WANT IT!!
    so i called at the nearest bookstore… they could get it but in a shortened version (o.O) for 50 to 80 euro (!!!!!!!!)
    that was faaaaar to much …. so i wrote an e-mail to a german online shop for japanese stuff et voila =D
    ( won’t make publicity now but the owner seems to be really nice =) )
    i payed about 19 euro … but the book itself costs about 10-11 euro and the transport isn’t free for him either ( i don’t think he made much profit with this order … )
    so it IS possible but not that easy to get =)
    just think of other ways =)
    i’m going to read this in a while ( week-end i think) … school stuff @_@
    the tv show was very sentimental!
    so dewa mata ne!

  43. wait … you did get it ?! in germany ?! … i want it too … ;-;”

  44. Hey everyody!

  53. hi.. I love ichi ritoru no namida so much! ahhmm.. I was just wondering if this book has a copy of english version here in philippines? I badly need one. I am a 12-year-old girl, and I am going to be in high school this june, I am writing some poems too, and stories, I’m working for our newspaper when I was in grade school. I was amazed by Kito Aya, the way she writes on her diary, the way she uses our nature, our mother earth. So I started writing some stories the way she sees things, she’s really my inspiration..

    So, with all your help minna-san, I really need to have her copy. I was hoping to study more and be inspired while reading her works. I really love reading books, so please tell me where I can buy her english version of books here in Philippines. Onegai Shimasu!

    ne minna, Zutto Ikite!

Hi,my name is Patton.I’m Thai.I’m also one of you guys struggling to find the book.But luckily,I found the book.It doesn’t take very long to find.I think it doesn’t look very good in finding the book right now.I asked my uncle in America to find the book but he found none of them in stock.Then I mailed to one of Kinokuniya’s branch in a big department store.They said they have only 1 book remaining.The book is located in Isetan Zone.So I was lucky.But I want you guys to be lucky like me.Why don’t you try mailing them and see if they are any left.Let me know if there are any progress.

  55. how did you get the book in kinokuniya? did they deliver it to you? or did your uncle get it for you? it’s in singapore right? and you are in thailand.. how did you get it please? did you go to singapore and they reserve it for you? besides..

Hope that theirs someone can help or tell me if I can by this book here in the Philippines? Thanks!

  93. this story really touched my heart…. even i’m still young, i learned that not only me in this world is crying but also, many in this world struggled very much… i’m 13 years old and i learned many things in my life because of this movie and published diary of aya kito….. She’s a big part in my life because i realized many things, like in struggles, we should not give up easily and take it too pressure to our lives because it can make more troubles and trials.. Beleive in yourself always and dont loose hope… thats one of my lessons learned about aya’s diary. eventhough i didnt know her much,,, i still LOVE HER and she’s my inspiration to continue to live life and never hesitate to love other people.

  94. yes. thats true. im just 16, but i really understand that life is so beautiful. dont waste time. do it if you can do now. i can relateto the story. me and my girlfriend is crying. hehehe.
    its because im migrating and im leaving my girlfriend alone here. so sad! so we can easily relate our life to that story of Aya Kito
