We have launched "Hirogaru, get more of Japan and Japanese" (Hirogaru) as a Japanese learning website where you can enjoy studying Japanese while getting information on various topics. It is aimed for Japanese language learners with a proficiency level of A1 or A2 (Starter to Elementary) in the JF Standard for Japanese-Language Education.
Hirogaru is composed of 12 topics: Stars and the Night Sky, Outdoors, Martial Arts, Cafés and Tea, Sweets, Supermarkets and Markets, Calligraphy, Anime and Manga, Books and Libraries, Temples and Shrines, Music, and Aquariums, as these topics generated a lot of interest on a survey of more than 5,000 Japanese language learners all over the world. Since Hirogaru is not a website that follows a curriculum for studying Japanese, you can browse and learn whenever and whatever sections you want. The site contents in Hirogaru will also be frequently updated.
With Japanese and English versions, Hirogaru is also designed to be responsive to smartphones.
The site is available for free.
Learn the Japanese language through your interests in the various topics.
