If you are learning Japanese, don't miss Makoto, a digital magazine with all the good stuff not usually found in textbooks. Beginning-level hiragana readers, upper beginner to intermediate-level readers, Japanese proverbs, jokes, cultural asides, and more all with several eBook formats and MP3 sound files of all the Japanese found within.

Want a sample? Sure! Click here to download the complete first issue. Please note, we have added and improved the magazine since then. The later issues are better! 

We've also prepared the first issue as a Flip PDF here. When you purchase any issue or a subscription, you will receive the actual eBook files (PDF, ePub, and Kindle MOBI) as well as the MP3 sound files.

If you like our e-zine, we have several bundle options to save on the back issues:
