Tofugu visits the world's only Drive-thru Buddhist Altar Store.

Oh, and some #doggies.
If you're on your way to pick up the kids from lacrosse practice and think "I need a butsudan," swing by the world's only Butsudan Altar Drive-Thru.

Spring 2015 gave us some great #anime. But only 3 rose above the rest.
The lineup of spring 2015 anime had some gold and some brass. We cleared out the crap and left you with only the best.

Out-text and out-tweet your friends with Tofugu's koamoji guide.

Kaomoji (顔文字), which literally means face (顔) letters (文字), is the Japanese word for "emoticon." They are much more interesting than the Western counterpart, though.

Discover Japan's culture of convenient home worship with the wonderful world of butsudan.
You may have seen Japanese family and home altars and wondered to yourself, "What is a Butsudan?" Well we got the answer and more.

I'd recommend anything slice of life. Like Lucky Star :)

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!
