Workout
Study Book

One of the most important aspects of learning Japanese is to be consistent with intake of content. Textbooks are dull so we have archived special articles that we believe gives readers the ability to look at Japan from various angles. Our supplemental learning is informative and entertaining, the perfect language workout.
