The Sound of the Mountain is unusually long for a Kawabata novel, running to 276 pages in its English translation.

Sound of the Mountain was adapted as a film of the same name (Toho, 1954), directed by Mikio Naruse and starring Setsuko Hara, So Yamamura, Ken Uehara and Yatsuko Tanami. For the first U.S. edition (1970), Seidensticker won the National Book Award in category Translation. Plot
