The Hiragana Times is a Japanese magazine very useful for those who are learning Japanese. Indeed, the articles are written in English but followed by the Japanese version. It is a very good way to practice Japanese no matter your level. On one hand, beginners will learn lots of vocabulary and get used to reading in Japanese without having difficulty since the kanji have furigana. On the other hand, advanced speakers will be able to practice regularly their Japanese.

The articles are very different and cover from cultural facts to business and politics themes, stories of foreigners living in Japan and tips on traveling are also published.
There is a digital version of the magazine which you can read on your computer or print at home, some articles also have an audio version that subscribers can download to practice listening.
It is a very good way to improve your Japanese skills and discover more about Japan and its culture at the same time.
