Printable Japanese Worksheets and Books from

12 Aug

There seems to be no lack of wonderful websites for learning Japanese geared toward children these days. I love it!! It was just a few years ago when I would scour the internet for resources and could never find anything good. We are blessed in this digital age to have all these resources at our fingertips.

The website I want to highlight today is Their “free downloads” section has wonderful printables, including hiragana and katana worksheets, papercrafts, BOOKS, etc. I want to print off their free books onto cardstock and have them bound for my kids. Their hiragana/katakana worksheets are beautifully done too.  Thank you, brother!

P.S. I have updated my “hiragana practice sheets” and “katakana resources” pages lately. Check them out and share with your friends! :).

    Thank you for being so diligent in updating these resources, they’re wonderful! Just yesterday I sent a link of yours to a friend who has been here in Japan for almost 6 years. So, regardless of where people are your work of scouring the Internet has been put to good use numerous times! Thank you :-). We’re on summer break and these worksheets will be a great addition to my children’s studies so they won’t forget too much before school starts again!

    Wow! I just stumbled across your blog while looking for more Shimajirou materials for my 2 year old daughter. My husband is a native Japanese speaker and I am a native English speaker and we are trying to give our daughter both languages. We live in Louisiana and only know of two other Japanese families with kids here. It’s a challenge especially since I (the native English speaker) stay at home with her and don’t speak much Japanese. So excited about the resources you are publishing here!

      Hi M.Kawanaka,
      Did you know there’s a Facebook support group for women married to Japanese men that live outside of Japan? It’s called JOS if you’re interested!
      Cheers Jo

    do you have games in english that work with Japanese. I’m a beginner and I can’t read in Japanese at all.

    I have a 10 year old boy that just moved to our school from Japan. He does not speak any English. I am working on finding some age appropriate printables to use with him in Japanese. Do you have any suggestions?

      I feel terrible for not seeing this comment earlier. I hope he has adjusted well.

What do you think? どうおもう?
