Welcome to the web site for the Japanese Studies Program, Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, York University. This site is primarily for students who are studying Japanese Studies at York University, but all the instructional materials are made available to anyone who is interested in learning the Japanese language, culture and society via the Internet. There is no password restriction. We believe that free access to materials on the Internet will be beneficial to those who are willing to learn, but do not have direct access to formal courses or programs.
The site is constantly under revision. We welcome your comments, and hope you will find the materials and information provided on our site useful and helpful.

please try another one. With these three sites we wish to secure
uninterrupted access to information and materials.

program. Please consult with the Section
