Explore Osaka with Weekly Nihongo hosts Marino and Ryan

Weekly Nihongo videos (#WeeklyNihongo), posted each Friday on our Facebook page (@jas.wdc), are bite-sized Japanese language and culture lessons: our short posts and videos, planned and written by native Japanese speakers and advanced learners, are designed to teach you basic Japanese grammar and other aspects of the Japanese language.

We also want to share with you interesting and fun aspects of the Japanese language to help you better understand how it works in and out of Japan.

Follow us on Facebook or Instagram so you don’t miss our Weekly Nihongo updates.
