The aim of the paper is to analyze Mitsuyo Kakuta‘s translated novel entitled Woman on the Other Shore. The focus of analysis is on the friendship, work, and shore in the life of the three Japanese females. Since the focus of analysis is on the female characters, the analysis is done within the frame of the feminist literary criticism. Freud‘s concept of consciousness and unconsciousness as well as bisexuality, the concept of lesbianism from Lewes, Eisenbud, Chodorow, and McDougall, the concept of shore and bully, and a perspective on Marxism are the supporting concepts used indicating the contextual method of analysis. The result shows that the two-stage relationship of the three Japanese females are colored by one-sided lesbianism. The lesbian partner sought for so long in the friendship, work, and shore is not easy to find symbolizing that the coveted partner is still ―the woman on the other shore.‖
