“I should have bought this book a long time ago. I have been studying Japanese informally for a long time, and this book is improving my knowledge by leaps and bounds. I would recommend it to anyone who has decided to get serious about studying Japanese. It gives clear and simple instructions on how to write and read all the one hundred characters in the book” - by FantasyFan on October 13, 2012

SIMPLICITY. IT STARTED WITH SIMPLE IDEA AND DESIGN
We also offer t-shirts with different simple designs about Japanese
Interesting, cute, different, valuable.
The mp3s and ebooks of the dialogues are very helpful. The speakers voices are clear and distinct allowing you easily recognise the Japanese words you're familiar with.
Though we know how most cats hate travelling, this Maneki Neko made it in a fly. I guess the quality cotton matrix made her oblivious of any potentially harmful reality. Anyway, this T-Shirt had my wife break into a Cheshire smile. Which is very good: Happy wife, happy life, you might remember. Kuma 熊
What is not to love about anything Hello Kitty! When I see her, she makes me smile and feel happy. I'll smile and be happy every time I use my fan during this hot Arizona summer! Such a simple thing :-) Thank you for making them available!!
This is a great bundle to practice Japanese from traditional stories for beginners or intermediate learners of Japanese.
The stories are great for beginners and intermediates and the formatting is really helpful. I'm very much enjoying them so far!
I love this magazine (e-zine) for the articles. It is a fun read full of language and culture tips. Worth every penny.
These stories handle two birds with one stone: instructive and accessible language learning as well as a brief, entry-level look into aspects of Japanese history. When used in conjunction with other products on offer these stories provide a broader scope of grammar and vocabulary. I am very pleased that I found this store.
It's not often you find a store whose products are as excellent as their customer service. The beginner stories collection I purchased are well collated and will be a very useful aid in my journey towards Japanese language comprehension and study. みんな頑張ります
I’ve been learning Japanese on and off for about a year now. It seems I get on a streak and then I am either stuck staring at vocabulary cards or glued to a dictionary spending 10 minutes to read a single sentence. The stories and helpful context/definitions have helped sky rocket my interest, vocabulary, and reading proficiency without me having to do a lot of the heavy lifting for looking up words and intricate uses of phrases. The audio clips are also very useful for going back and listening to the stories once you have mastered the vocabulary involved. Would highly recommend to all those who are trying to make steps into reading Japanese text once you have a basic understanding of the grammar.
Fast shipping. Owner is extremely kind. A+ always.
Love their products! I would recommend them!
I bought their The Complete Japanese Reader Collection and it is so good. I recommend it. The stories are fun to read because they are Japanese folklore.
The Makoto Japanese e-Zine 1 Year Subscription I bought from the Japan Shop is a tremendous value of the highest quality. I can, as a student of Japanese, who has attended Meio University in Japan, categorically recommend the material from the Japan Shop and especially the Makoto Japanese e-Zine Magazine for helping me. Thanks to Clay and Yumi. I am very grateful for all you do so well to help others enjoy the Japanese language and wonderful culture of Japan.
The Japan Shop has tons of great materials for people learning Japanese. Clay and Yumi truly care about their customers and aren't just out to make a quick buck. They want you to get the best deal possible and consistently deliver quality content. Highly recommended!
Great materials for people learning Japanese. Highly recommended
I love the materials you have to offer. They really do work well for my style of learning and I am so glad to have found you (thanks to the Agora Letters!).
Excellent reference book. Easy to read, and very accessible to beginning level students without dumbing things down for more advanced students.
What can I say?
Mangajin is the ultimate cult!
There has never been anything comparable
again. Explanations are superb even with tricky
grammar. Impossible to forget once you've read
Excellent book and the same fast, friendly service I have come to expect over years of buying from this shop! Thank you once again!
As for Workbook Vol 1, which came together with Vol 2, the delivery was quick, except a delay in customs clearance. The quality of the books is good.
I received the Workbook 1 and 2 last week. The delivery was fast, except some delay at customs clearance in Germany.
Both English and Japanese voices are sound perfectly clear and professional. The selection of words and sample sentences is marvelous.
