This is a site for learners of Japanese to enjoy graded readers designed so that you can read lots, for free.

  • Levels are from 0 to 5 (for grade levels, see https://tadoku.org/japanese/levels/).
  • The kanji have furigana so there's no worry about not being able to read them.
  • There are pictures, photos, and audio, too.
  • You can PDF-download pages or print them out.
  • The site is very simple and easy to use.
