What's this Challenge about?

We want to help children suffering from the Japanese language barrier!


Nowadays, more and more people from overseas come to work in Japan,
usually accompanying their families. Especially their children, who
are one day forced to leave their homeland, find a lot of difficulties
adjusting to school lives in Japan. Not knowing the Japanese language
or culture, they are often caught in such severe situations in school
that they, in the worst case, commit suicide. We do not want any more
overseas families to undergo such experiences. We believe the solution
is to publish an e-magazine that enables them to learn the Japanese
language and culture with pleasure. This e-magazine "Japanese" uses
manga to introduce not only the language, but also the Japanese
culture like traditional craftwork, customs, anime, manga, J-POP and
rural cultures. We will distribute it globally in various languages.
