This study aims to reveal ecocriticism reading in Miyazawa Kenji’s two short stories, namely Kenjuu Kooenrin and Oinomori to Zarumori, Nusutomori. This writing used qualitative with ecocriticism approach and its perspective written by Dobie regarding environmentally-oriented literary works. The results showed that these two short stories by Miyazawa Kenji show the same thing, namely advocating for nature but in different ways.
