“I have no Japanese experience, so I was curious what would happen if I gave it a shot. I was immediately hooked and found myself learning the basics without even knowing it.”

“I’ve been studying Japanese for 2 years and this is the first time I’ve come across a program I can’t wait to use everyday.”


At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Japanese app includes 8 challenging games designed by education experts. Each game teaches a specific skill and helps create a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes well beyond basic flashcards.

Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating Japanese words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn Japanese, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.

Whether you’re traveling to Japan for pleasure or learning Japanese for business, MindSnacks will help with your grammar and vocab so you can become less reliant on a dictionary or translator. Great for beginning and intermediate learners of Japanese, MindSnacks is like a helpful Japanese teacher that goes where you go and teaches on your terms.

Daisuki<3 ^-^

I love this app! Its layout & display are very clear, easy-to-understand and fun; easy on the eyes. It's youthful combination of sounds and animations are entertaining. One of thee best apps I've come a across. It's ad-free in both the free and paid version. For an affordable fee of $4.99 this app offers many more lessons with the bang for your buck. Overall, I'm definitely satisfied with this app, well-made. Kudos to its creators! 👍🏼

I used to attend Japanese School, and use this app to help me freshen up my memory. I do know for a fact that the last hiragana character in the chart is actually "wo" in Romanized Japanese and is supposed be the 2nd to last character (before"n"). The first "o" is fine, there is only one "o" in Japanese. I've also never heard the term "romaji" I refer to it as, "Romanized Japanese", that's how I was taught in college at least.


I got this about ichi hour and a half ago to ni hours ago, and now i know my japanese numbers up to nijuu!! 😄 i am so happy yay! It was super easy to follow, my favorite was the belly mode. I wish they had more lessons though for letters, or even more numbers for free. 😌 but i really recommend this app for children, really any age, but for someone who might be a slow learner cause there are a lot of instructions so you get it, instead of leaving you out in the road to die. This has 4 modes that i am aware of, 20 numbers that you can learn and master, and a bunch of kinda random numbers in my opinion. What are you still reading this for? Just get it already!!

Amazing way to learn a language!

This app is wonderful! I have always wanted to learn Japanese and now I am well on my way to knowing this language! The layout is clean and easy to understand, and the mini games for mastering vocabulary are fun and engaging! It has vocalization along with every word to help with pronunciations! There is also a section where you can review mastered vocabulary so you can always practice the ones you have already learned! The only real challenge is that you need to learn the two alphabets on your own, but once you have that down this app is perfect! Highly recommend to anyone looking to learn a language!
