Tofugu started out as a college course project in 2008. It was rooted as a Japanese language blog for English speakers. Over the years Tofugu began to find its niche and evolved into a full-time business.
Today there are two facets of Tofugu: the blog and the company.
Most people are familiar with our wonky Japanese language and culture blog, which is what you are seeing at this very moment.
We write about Japanese topics we're passionate about, so hopefully you like the same things we like. We also write about our travels in Japan, do reviews on products, write guides to help you with Japanese, and make videos too.
The other face of Tofugu is the company. We design Japanese language learning tools to tackle specific areas where people have difficulty.
