If you are new to Japanese, we suggest starting with hiragana. Have fun!
Learn hiragana fast with our all-in-one hiragana resource page. And once you've memorized all the characters, try your hand at a real story in Japanese (it has two versions: one hiragana only with spaces and one with beginner-level kanji). And if you want more, our Beri- Beri- Shoshinsha Beginner's Digital Bundle (at TheJapanShop.com) has many more stories and books to help you learn key beginner-level concepts.
