Japanese Language Students Reading Guide: Home

This page is designed for students who are taking Japanese courses at GW Japanese Program.

Visit the Global Resources Center

This LibGuide (library guide) will introduce a variety of TADOKU books that your Japanese language teachers high recommend as your out-or-classroom activities. (What is tadoku?)

Along with the TADOKU books, you will find other Japanese language books that are suitable for different levels of the Japanese language proficiency. Many of the books in our collection focus on Okinawa. GW's Okinawa Collection was established in 2015 with generous funds by the Okinawa Prefectural Government.

Most of the Japanese language books are held at the Okinawa Collection/Japan Resource Center (OC/JRC) at the Global Resources Center (GRC). It's located on the 7th floor of the Gelman Library. The GRC main room has several tables for group or individual study, and one table in the East Asia room in the center of the JRC's stacks. It's an ideal place to get in some Japanese reading.
