  • 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.

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.

Great books!

These books are a fantastic learning aid. The dialogues are extremely useful and well supported. The best part is that they are actually fun to use. You can perform role playing with a partner so two can learn Japanese. The downloads that come with the books are a special bonus. The MP3s are easy to use and provide sound to the written language. Books. MP3 files. What more can you ask for?

A great, and fun, educational tool.

The idea to combine stories written in hiragana with an audio recording of the text is a simple idea but very effective. There are kanji in each story too (with furigana) but the story is broken down line by line with explanations for particles, kana and each kanji. The audio recordings are great and the lady who reads them has beautifully precise and crystal clear pronunciation, that is easy to absorb and a delight to listen to! All in all I’m very satisfied and my kanji knowledge has increased with each one. Highly recommended, just bear in mind you will need to be able to read hiragana.

Great for beginners!

These are amazing! Every sentence is broken down, it comes with audio, but to me the best part is these feel like real conversations. This feels like a natural way to learn a language. Learning through real everyday conversations. Thank you Clay and Yumi!

A fun tool!

These stories are much shorter than the Japanese Reader collection, but are just as fun. They are full of grammar, vocabulary and listening comprehension as well. These may be harder for beginners but are a great tool and I will be coming back to them more than once!

Awsome!

This bundle is absolutely amazing in not just monetary value, but in learning value. These are full of vocabulary and every sentence and word is broken down for you. You can look up a specific word if that is all you need or you can look at the translation of the whole sentence. Please get this if you are looking to improve your reading, listening, vocabulary, and cultural understanding. These stories are not randomly chosen, they are stories that most Japanese people will know.
