Two decades ago, we began TheJapanesePage.com, one of the internet's oldest and largest free Japanese instructional sites with hundreds of free articles for beginners of Japanese. We also run TheJapanShop.com, an online store that sells quality lessons and Japanese study materials like books, eBooks, videos, audios and articles which are helpful for learners of Japanese. We also have Makoto+ - a monthly e-zine for beginner to intermediate learners of Japanese. It is a digital magazine with all the good stuff not usually found in textbooks. It has articles on Japanese grammar, kanji, culture, and art. Each issue also includes two complete short stories with vocabulary, grammar explanations, and two sound files of each story (normal speed and slower).
