Kawabata Yasunari (川端 康成), (1899-1972) was a Japanese writer who wrote both novels and short stories. In 1968, he became the first Japanese writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. He committed suicide in 1972, although some consider his death to have been accidental. His major works include Yukiguni (雪国, Snow Country), Izu no odoriko (伊豆の踊子, The Dancing Girl of Izu) and Senbazuru (千羽鶴, Thousand Cranes).
