This site offers lessons, articles related language and culture, great links to Japanese language resources and more. Many of my lessons are hand written to teach proper stroke order and present the writing in a natural format. I like to help people learn Japanese and put an extra personal touch into my lessons. I will be very happy if my site helps you to understand and enjoy Japanese.
