Japanese Language Resources

Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com
Speaking the local language is an important part of exploring Japan. One of my personal favorite programs for learning Japanese is Japanesepod.101.  Japanesepod.101 has a series of courses that can help you learn the basics of Japanese for your trip or stay in Japan.  It is one of the best courses I’ve found online for learning conversational Japanese. It will definitely get you speaking fluent Japanese in no time!


The best Japanese dictionary, period. Over 30,000 words. Great for learning both vocabulary and reading kanji.

Blogging Resources


Bluehost is my favorite hosting company and is great for bloggers who are just starting out or those who want to scale up their website and require more advanced features. Their prices are low, their servers stay on, and the customer service is fantastic. If you’re looking for a reliable hosting company, I highly recommend you go with Bluehost.
