● こんにちは, We’re here to redesign the way you study the Japanese language! No more trying one Japanese learning app and uninstalling it after a few uses. We are here to help you learn effectively, efficiently, and have fun while doing it!

Practice Hiragana and Katakana on the go, the two building blocks of the Japanese language. We have quizzes that are carefully designed to suit your learning style and more advanced tests to teach you everyday words for conversations. Embrace a learning method that is more fun, challenging, and competitive, but a way that also helps you remember faster and more effectively.

We took great effort in creating the most complete Japanese learning experience yet. One of the core features of Nihongo Life is the fantastic reference chart which includes how-to-write animations, pronunciation with real voices, and handwriting practice. The more you learn, your chart will light up and you can compete for points on the leaderboard.

Relax and enjoy the clean and well-though UI which enhances the effectiveness of your learning. All lessons and content are tailored per your learning levels allowing you to learn appropriately, make progress really quickly, and practice on the go! And when you want to learn more about any word of your interest, you may use the in-built advanced Japanese dictionary.

We’re driven by redefining the concept of learning Japanese. Our mission is to make the study Japanese authentic yet more practical so you can start speaking Japanese right away.

Learning Hiragana and Katakana will always be free! If you want to continue your studies, we have an affordable subscription to study words, Kanji, and sentences.

Download now for FREE and we promise effective and fast Japanese learning and an app that will become the only app you’ll ever use for learning Japanese!

Toruko-jin ,

The search is over!

After trying countless apps on the App Store in my quest to learn Japanese, I can honestly say that I have found Nihongo No Hon to be the most useful in helping me learn Hiragana and Katakana. With advance features that you won’t find on other apps, you can configure the quizzes to perfect your skills. I could not recommend this app any higher, give it ago and I’ll see you on the leaderboard!
