Learn Japanese with illustrated flashcards.

Are you interested in learning Japanese? Or have you already leaped and started?

Is your goal to visit Japan and maybe exchange a word or two with the locals? Or to live in Japan one day and speak like a native? Or to be able to read your favorite manga or watch your favorite anime in Japanese? (All great goals!)

Learning a new language is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. We’ve experienced the same learning a foreign language ourselves, which is why as a design duo, we wanted to create a window for learning Japanese in a light-hearted, playful way with illustration and design.

Welcome to Nihongo Flashcards

We want to make learning Japanese enjoyable.
And we want to share Japanese that you can use right away. (Let’s start with food!)

Flip through some flashcards, watch some videos during your coffee break, and learn a word and a phrase or two. We hope it’ll help in some way — even to get away from the daily grind (because looking at food illustrations and flipping can be meditative).

Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy!
