I'm an American learning Japanese for fun, but working hard to improve. This section of my site is a collection of articles on language, culture, kanji and other topics in Japanese.
There are no tutorials or graded reading here; it's just a collection of stuff. The skill level is whatever mine was at the time of writing—ranging from beginner to lower intermediate. I don't use romaji but will usually provide furigana (which you can show or hide: see the menubar). Sometimes I'll define terms in detail; at other times, I'll assume you know it or can look it up.
The seeds for this site were sown in 2015, when I started taking and publishing notes for our weekly conversation group. We used to be able to store those at the Meetup site; however, Meetup has phased out their storage. I'm migrating those PDF docs here, and am adding new material.
