The second story, A Japanese Nightingale, is much better, even night and day better. It also uses pigeon english, but that is much more believable and understandable, even though that author, also, had little understanding of the Japanese culture. You know just want Yuki is saying! If I could rate it separately, it would be five stars. It is an engaging story. Recommend!
Thus, I would recommend reading the second story first, and if you have time, struggle through the first later.
