Go on a temple tour in Kyoto. Hit up all the best.

Wonky Japanese Language & Culture Blog
Introduction
We write about Japan, Japanese Culture, and The Japanese Language.

Our main goal is to help people to learn Japanese. Sometimes that means making Japanese more accessible, other times that means making our own learning resources, and sometimes that means helping people individually. We hope you enjoy!
