Bonjinsha is a specialty bookstore that got its start more than 30 years ago selling preparatory materials for the JLPT, and it carries everything from specialized dictionaries for translators to educational games and toys for children. Bonjinsha’s Kojimachi shop — the only retail bookshop in Tokyo that specializes almost exclusively in Japanese-language study-and-reference materials … it is run by the Bonjinsha publisher based in Tokyo’s Chiyoda Ward that networks closely with organizations promoting the study of Japanese.

  2. Hello friends! How do you do?

    I am a university student of languages and I would like to know more about

    your publications. How could I receive a “brochure” of the language and the japanese schools in Japan? I´ve received one a long, long time ago.
