About Learn Japanese with Makoto Magazine

Click here for the Patreon Supporters Quick Links Page

こんにちは! Konnichi wa! Hello, there!

Clay and Yumi here producing Makoto! a monthly e-zine for beginner to intermediate learners of Japanese. It is a digital magazine with all the good stuff not usually found in textbooks. It has articles on Japanese grammar, kanji, culture, and art. Each issue will also include a complete short story with a running gloss, grammar explanations, and two MP3s of the story (normal speed and slower).

We also run TheJapanesePage.com and TheJapanShop.com. Each month, Patreon supporters will receive exclusive content and deals from both. For nearly two decades, we have produced articles, podcasts, videos, smartphone apps, eBooks, paperbacks, audiobooks, and courses to help you learn Japanese. 


Each issue includes free MP3s of the Japanese
Want to see what Makoto is all about?
Sure! The first issue is free. Click here to download the MP3s and find the link to download the ePub, MOBI, or PDF (we recommend the PDF).

THAT'S NOT ALL
Patreon supporters (at certain levels) will also get access to:
  • Makoto! Issues before anyone else
  • New eBooks with MP3s before anyone else
  • Exclusive Patreon lessons, downloads, and audio files 
  • Every single Patreon supporter gets an exclusive and reusable coupon for anything at our store, TheJapanShop.com

We need your help in order to keep our creative output going. For only $3 a month, you will receive a digital copy of the latest Makoto! issue. At higher levels receive the eBook or paperback version of our latest Japanese books before they are released. We also have tons of other cool Japanese-related swag like t-shirts and coffee mugs.

Want to see what you will get for each level? See everything that's included here. You will get immediate access to all within your level upon becoming a patron.

Yumi and I both want to thank you for your time. If you are interested in Japanese, give us a try for as low as $3 a month.
