Our Mission

The Japan Times BOOKCLUB introduces users to books and other material published by The Japan Times Publications, and allows them to search for titles in the site database–but that’s not all. We also support Japanese-language learners by putting them in touch with resources that can help them to master the skills necessary for communicating in Japanese.

In addition to publishing first-rate study texts for English learners in Japan, The Japan Times Publications (a unit of the English-language newspaper The Japan Times) offers a diverse lineup of books for learning Japanese that have gained a wide following in Japan and abroad for their quality and effectiveness.

At BOOKCLUB, we hook up all Japanese-language learners–beginning to advanced–with the right study tools for their level and objectives. Along with Genki Online, a sister site offering a series of beginner Japanese study books, we provide solid support to everyone who wants to learn Japanese.
