About this Site

I started this site in February of 2008 to share study tips for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Three years later, I now work as a professional translator in Tokyo.

I focus on self study, since I think that is the most effective way to learn for determined individuals. I also offer a lot of pointers to other great (often free!) online and offline resources.

New series of articles on how to make Japanese friends online

As some of you may know, I am now spending most of my time developing Oh My Japan, a social network that helps Japanese and English speakers connect with one another for friendship, language exchange, and romance.

I've added several articles to that site about making friends with Japanese people which may be of interest to Nihongo Pera Pera readers as well.

Announcing Oh My Japan, a social network for people interested in Japan and Japanese culture

Over the past twelve months, I've spent most of my spare time working on a new website for people interested in Japan, the Japanese language, and Japanese culture. This website, Oh My Japan, will allow people both in and outside of Japan to make friends with Japanese and other people from around the world who share their interests.
