About Hey! Thanks for visiting! This site is about how you can learn Japanese without taking classes, by having fun and doing things you enjoy—watching movies, playing video games, reading comic books—you know: fun stuff! Stuff that you feel guilty about doing because you should be doing “serious things”. I am your host, Khatzumoto. I didn’t take classes (except for a high-level “newspaper reading” class…which merely confirmed that classes, um, suck); I didn’t read textbooks and I had never lived in Japan. So how did I do it? So what? 1. A lot of people have since asked me questions like “hey Khatzumoto, how did you do it?” 1. Now, not everything works for everyone. So, if you’re wanting to learn Japanese but don’t know where to start, or if you already know some but want to take it further, and if you want to not just get by in Japanese but to own it, than this site is here for you, to share with you the tools and information that you can use to learn Japanese to native-level fluency.

Minna no Nihongo (Rus) Nippon VoiceBlog We offer Kagamimochi to God from Ganjitsu, the first day of New Year, to January 11th. We wish happiness for New Year and decorate it. Kagamimochi is , so to speak, means something for people to open correspondence with gods. <日本語文>晴れの日のおもち、祝いのおもち、ねぎらいのおもち、力づけのおもちというように、おもちは何かにつけて日本人の心を表す食べ物として昔から扱われています。また、生活の中の行事に、おもちは欠かせないものとされてきました。 鏡餅は、様と人を仲介するものであり、1年間の幸せを願う「晴れの日」に神前に捧げた餅をみんなで分け合って食べることで、神様からの祝福を受けようという信仰・文化の名残りなのです。 さて、1月11日は鏡餅を食べる「鏡開き」の日です。 おもちは、焼く、煮る、炒める、揚げるなど、たくさんの食べ方があります。 みなさんも、今年はいろんなおもちを作ってみてはいかがでしょう? 今回は日本の「鏡餅」をご紹介しました

Easy to read manga for Japanese beginners I’ve been trying to learn Japanese for about one and a half years now. I had my ups and downs and even took a break from studying for a couple of months last year. It became just too frustrating and was more like an everyday burden than fun. But this all changed when I booked my flight to Toyko last October (2012). Many people obviously want to learn a new language for the primary reason to speak it in its specific country. I once learned English through watching movies with (English) subtitles, so I thought “why shouldn’t the reading-route work with Japanese too.” So here we go, my list of easy to read manga for Japanese beginners. Regarding the links: (If you buy the books through my links, I’ll get a small referral fee which will be used to buy even more awesome books for review.) If you’re in search for some transparent book covers to wrap your manga, just click on the link! 1. The obvious choice and highly recommended when it comes to manga for Japanese beginners. 2. 3. 4.

Manyoshu Best 100 Compiler's note: Man'yoshu ("Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves") is the earliest extant collection of Japanese poetry. Most of its 4,516 numbered waka (or "Japanese poems") in 20 volumes were written in the 7th and 8th centuries. For a brief description of the Man'yōshū, see: Manyoshu in WIKIPEDIA, The Free Encylopedia. An electronic online version of the complete text of the Man'yōshū is available at Japanese Text Initiative. The one hundred poems presented in these web pages are what I consider some of the best pieces in this classical anthology. Comments, corrections, and suggestions are welcome. Note: The Romanized Japanese spelling of the name of this anthology (まんようしゅう in hiragana) varies, including: Manyoshu, Man'yoshu, Man Yo Shu, Man You Shuu, Manyoushuu, and Man'youshuu.

Arabic Song Lyrics and Translation WASHOKU - Japanese Food Culture and Cuisine Review: Kanji pict-o-graphix - Japanese Tease You all know it by now: I like to buy books, especially if the’re related to Japan or studying Japanese. I usually prefer Japanese printings for that matter with that special silky paper and the extra wrapping around the book. But this here will do as well and in the end it’s all about the content. A friend of mine put it nicely when she said “everything is just a little bit prettier down there”. And she is right. Nevertheless I bought some books from the states as well and Kanji pict-o-graphix is one of them. When I first started with learning Japanese the Kanji, the so called Chinese characters, were a big mistery for me. I probably don’t have to mention it but both didn’t help me at all to achieve my goal. Buy Kanji pict-o-graphixs at amazon.comIf you buy the book through my link, I’ll get a small referral fee which will be used to buy even more awesome books for review. Note: This will kick of a new series of articles or rather a new form.
