Yumi and I (Clay) hope you will enjoy this inaugural issue of Makoto. Please remember, the newer issues are bigger and better. Since launching 2018, we have added more content and value to each issue.

❝ Makoto is a great magazine for not only learning the japanese language, but it also features articles about japanese culture and food as well. Furthermore it holds lots of info about places of interest that one should visit when travelling in Japan. ❞

❝ As a complete beginner I found these books great on basic words and pronunciation. Loved the articles on the Japanese prefectures. ❞

❝ Learning any language in context is better than just using textbooks alone. ❞

Here are the top questions Yumi and I get asked about our bundle deals:

I have a Mac, will these bundles work with my computer?

I don't know any Japanese at all. Do you have a download for me?

Do I really get free updates?

How do I access my download?

Can I print these or use them on multiple devices?
