Read authentic content


Read any Japanese website

Kanjimi is a web-application and a browser extension that works with any Japanese website. It automatically adds useful information to the text.

Improve your vocabulary

In order to learn, a complete translation of the text is not helpful. That is why we focus on providing the meaning and pronunciation for every word.
