We are a community dedicated to bringing and providing news...real news...from sources in Japan that avoid the English speaking community's public eye. The sources are usually either written in Japanese or from a popular Japanese newspaper.
Only a few rules, and here they are: 1. Please post your source for the sake of clarity and integrity.
2. Discussion is encouraged. Constructive criticism is also encouraged.
3. Please tag appropriately. Tags will be used to formulate the interest list later on.
4. Note that translating is difficult work due to the nature of the Japanese language, and that sometimes the resulting English will not be 100% gramatically correct.
5. Anyone can post, so let's make this a fun community. :)
