We Love Japanese!

Nihongo Master is made by people who love the Japanese language and culture. We work hard every day to make this the best online Japanese language learning resource available! Here's some of the people that make up who we are.



Taylor started Nihongo Master in early 2012 as a simple online Japanese dictionary. This passion project came to be out of a personal trip to Japan as he studied the language. Returning back to the United States, he knew he wanted to continue learning the language and share the joys of it with others. Nihongo Master has been growing ever since. Taylor is also an avid Lego fan. Listen to more of Taylor's story on our podcast interview!
