Hiragana is the first Japanese syllabary a student often learns. It forms the basis for really everything else. And you really need to know hiragana to use the readers to their fullest purpose. So, as an extra bonus, we are also including our book on Hiragana, also a $4.49 value.

Here’s what you get:

  • Jokes, fun phrases, and useful kanji
  • Prefecture Spotlight: each issue introduces a different Japanese prefecture
  • Read about Japanese history in real Japanese! Yes, as long as you have learned hiragana, you can read real Japanese today with these fully annotated stories. (Don’t know hiragana yet?! No problem. Our book to help you master hiragana is included.)
  • For the reader, every single line and every word are explained and defined.
  • Designed specifically for beginners to intermediates.
  • Build your Japanese vocabulary, understand new grammatical patterns, improve your reading skills, and hone in your listening abilities
  • Each reader includes TWO MP3s recorded by a native Japanese voice actress. One read slowly and one read at normal speed.
  • Print out the PDFs and drop the MP3s on your phone for on the go studying.
  • Normally each of the Makoto issues sell for $4 each and the two bonus books sell for $4.49 each. Now, for the first time, you can get them all together for a single low price of $28.98! Er... Nope! It's $15.00.

Perfect for the beginner to intermediate student of Japanese.

Finally!

Just what I was looking for. Thank you very much! Although I just bought the first 6 issues but I will - eventually - subscribe for future issues.
Did you consider adding QR codes after each hyperlink? I am reading this via my Kindle and listening to the MP3 on my phone. With the QR I could easily open the link without having to type in each time ;)

good value

A whole lot of accurate work as usual, and real fun too. I absolutely love that crazy but determined ninja Penguin: right attitude mate!

Thank you so much! I will tell Mr. Ninja Penguin about your comment. He will flap his flippers with joy!!

Really helping with practice

Really enjoying my purchase.

ありがとう!I'm thrilled you like Makoto! We are constantly improving (I hope) the monthly e-zine. We'll have more value bundles in the future too. If you have any suggestions for improvement (what you liked; what wasn't so helpful), I'd love to hear them.

Absolutely worth buying

If you are fine with non-hard copy versions of the books, this is perfect.
Only wish they had a set for JLPT N4 and above as well.

Good for beginners

Hi, actually I just started to use it. By now I can only say it is a good practice for me from a “reading” point of view, thanks a lot for your help. It is not easy to find this kind of material for starting with japanese language.

What's not to love!

This is great! You get the stories, translations, extra explanations of context, plus audio with both fast and slow pronunciation. I have been interested in Japanese for some time, and this has gotten me motivated to learn more than ever. You only need to have learned the hiragana syllabary more or less to get started. Plus, it's a lot more interesting to read these stories than only learning from textbooks or apps.

Love it!

I have a BA in Japanese but have forgotten so much over the years. I've been wanting to get back into re-learning the language and ran across The Japan Shop.

I love the way everything is broken down and explained in everyday plain English. Which makes it much easier for me to review what I already knew (and have forgotten!). Clay and Yumi have done an amazing job putting all this together. I wish The Japan Shop had existed during my college days. I would have learned so much more!

Excellent content and price!

No others words. All EXCELLENT! Keep going!
