Very happy with it

I enjoy using the stories. I am a beginner and it seems I tend to remember stuff from the stories faster than from a textbook.
Thank you

Picture please

I really like the concept of the book for learning japanese language. Unfortunately, it does not contain any picture in it. Only word. Well, I prefer to read a story with some picture in it. Because it is not novel. Most likely a japanese bedtime story. However, i pretty much like it though and I can increase my japanese language skill. You got it great for the main aim of the book.

But, This is only my feeling... To go through the story it's a little bit boring. Maybe add picture like other bedtime story book may be much more better. Please consider... Thank you very much.

Great deal

These books are ideal for learning. I was a bit apprehensive but they are great. Really helped my reading and understanding Japanese.


Top quality audio and text make all these a pleasure to use. Nice, clear voice and good explanations of the interesting stories and articles.
An excellent way to improve your comprehension and speech.

Great language tools package.

Living in the MidWest of the US, after one year of Japanese studies at community college, I have had little help moving forward with the language. So I was thrilled to discover what The Japanese Shop is doing, using sweet traditional stories to introduce vocabulary, grammar and kanji all in the context of a story. The MP3 files are icing on the cake, since they give the correct pronunciation and fluent tempo of the story. So far, I have only used the slow version of the mp3 files, which are careful to pause after each sentence. That feature really helped me find my place in the first few times. Finally, it is great to move onto to the proper Japanese text( without furigana or glossary) and find myself remembering the sophisticated kanji.
I did notice that, with the built-in speaker of an old personal computer, I had trouble hearing the story clearly without text in front of me....but, using the higher quality speaker on my newer IPad, the audio file was easy to understand.
