First off, we've listed the king combo + alpha for starting learning Japanese.
*If you are not a beginner, go to "Selection for Intermediate & Advanced Learners" via the link above.

Starter Set for Learning Japanese

"GENKI" series might be the world's most popular textbook as they are used in lots of universities outside of Japan as their official text. Also, this is the most selling Japanese text book at CDJapan.

From writing to reading, the first volume of "GENKI" has well-balanced contents among all the Japanese text books on their entry level. Although it is a bit pricey and heavy, all our staffs agree that this is the best text book to start studying Japanese language.



As you might have noticed, "GENKI" has a CD to practice Japanese listening skills along with the texts. Also, lots of other Japanese texts have a CD, especially ones for beginners as listening is one of the most important practices to learn a new language.

Headphones Specially-customized for Listening to Voice

When time allows you, you should consider listening Japanese all day long with various contents. And exclusively for that purpose, we are selling "Chonmagekun In-Ear Headphones," a headphones specially-customized for listening to voice. While it uses an exclusive technology made by an ex-SONY engineer, it keeps a low price range. Its detailed information and customer reviews can be read on: In-ear Headphones Specializing in Listening to Voice


For the last book we recommend for "Starter Set for Learning Japanese" is, "Japanese Graded Readers." After/during studying with "GENKI," you may want to try your reading skills in everyday situations. "Japanese Graded Readers (Level Betsu Nihongo Tadoku)" series meets such needs. It will become fun understanding Japanese as the series starts from very easy level.
