About NPMahjong: Nicolas Pro

Thanks for checking my Patreon! You may know me as xkime or Nikorasu or maybe just not know me at all, in which case, nice to meet you! I?'m a mahjong coach and webmaster at

I'm just a dedicated Japanese mahjong addict and certified professional player living in Japan.

I play for the NPM Japanese Professional Mahjong Association where I made my debut at live broadcasting by reaching the finals for the coveted Shinjin'ou title national tournament.

I spend time in almost every major online mahjong server: especially MahjongSoul and Tenhou where I've reached 7 Dan R2000+ and access to the Phoenix Table (the highest level table that Tenhou currently has).

The moment of truth

I've played in many mahjong parlors all over Japan, but I currently work almost exclusively for the East-Round Parlor "KillerTune" in Umeda; currently the only "Kabuki-cho Rules" parlor in all of West Japan.

I've also coached, encouraged and mentored many foreign players who have grown to become the strongest players in their mahjong club and their city!

At the work station


I recognized there was (and still is) a huge lack of mahjong content available in English to the public, so I spent most of my time writing and translating a lot of content for free.

Now I need your help to continue doing this.

I also collect mahjong books, and translated a lot of content from them!

Besides helping translate and subtitle some mahjong manga and dorama (such as Tetsunaki no Kirinji and Tohai), I've also contributed many translations and articles (blog posts) to the legendary mahjong blog and others that received countless hits and helped the community grow to new levels.

When you support me, I'll be able to upload more and more mahjong related content and media.

I'm also open to suggestions on the projects I should take, although I have a selection of a few things I think would be great to upload as well.

I just want to be the voice of the western Japanese community in Japan, and in turn rely all the stories, knowledge and experience gained in Japan back to the English-speaking community and see if we can catch up with the highest level Japanese players.
Can you help me? Pledge to this Patreon!

I love using my time to provide all this great material, and I cannot think of another better way to spend every hour online crafting strategy to encourage everyone to become better players. So let's make this Patreon lift up! Your pledges make it possible. Even 1 dollar, 5, the worth of a cup of coffee, 10, anything you can chip in oils the cogs of my mahjong machine and helps the mahjong community greatly. Thank you for your support!
