A Note on Pre-Orders: Usually, we ship your entire order once your last pre-order book is in stock (you can see the estimated shipping dates above). But if you need something early for a gift, just reach out and we'll help you out!

With 800+ words and pictures!

Introduce your child (or yourself!) to the incredible language of Japanese! Featuring over 800 first words with bright, bold illustrations, My First Book of Japanese provides each word in English, Japanese (hiragana/katakana), and a romanization that makes pronunciation a breeze. Words are divided into handy sections like kitchen, travel, and more, with a special emphasis on including foods and customs you'll find in Japan itself. 

We love our books so much, they come with our Easy-Peasy 100% Money-Backed Guarantee. 

We hope you fall in love with our books. But if for any reason you don't, we'll issue you a full refund—no questions asked. Just let us know the problem, and boom, done! Do you have to mail the book back? No need! (Life is too busy already, don't you think?) All we ask is that you donate the unwanted book to someone in need.

How fast do orders ship? In-stock books ship within 1-2 business days! 

Do you accept returns? If for any reason you don't love the book, let us know and we'll issue you a full refund, no questions asked. And no need to mail the book back! (Life is too busy already, don't you think?) All we ask is that you donate the unwanted book to someone in need.

What about pre-orders? When do those ship? Pre-ordered books ship as soon as we receive the physical books from the printer. To find the estimated shipping date for any pre-order title, just look above the "Pre-Order" button on the book's product page. Estimated shipping dates update based on the latest information we have on when books will arrive from the printer. 

How do I track my order? Once your order ships, you'll automatically receive tracking information by email. It's super quick and accurate!

Behind the Box
Jay Fox

Jay Fox grew up in San Jose, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley. Surrounded by cultural and ethnic diversity, Jay took an early interest in learning languages. His two favorite foreign languages are German and Japanese, and he has invested years of study in both. Over the years, he has also dabbled in Spanish, Russian, French, and Hebrew. As luck would have it, Jay managed to go to Germany in high school as part of a foreign exchange program, during which time he was able to visit eight countries in Europe. He looks forward to being able to travel to Japan someday. Jay currently lives in Fresno, California, with his wife and six children. When he isn’t working or studying foreign languages, he enjoys playing games and watching anime with his children.
