If your school or institution has subscribed to one of the offerings below, click, enter and enjoy! Should you have any questions, you will find more answers towards the bottom, or you may find what you need from one of these links:
Enjoy the publication the way the author intended, with the same great layout as the print version, except with the special features digital can provide, such as audio, search, note-taking, easy navigation and the convenience of viewing on the device of your choice.
Annual subscriptions for institutions
Each of the above are offered as yearly subscriptions, which are available to all students within the institution. There is no requirement for a username or password, as access is freely availlable to those within the IP range of the institution. There is no reader and nothing to install.
How do I get access?
If your school has signed up, you can enjoy unfettered access. Click one of the logos above to enter the index page. Click index from any page, and you will return to that main screen. From that screen, you can easily move between any of the magazine issues or you can return to this main page. If you get an error message, your school is not a subscriber, or you are not coming in through their gateway (which is necessary). You MUST come through the school's gateway, or Static IP (not yet available on a dynamic/rotating IP).
Who can subscribe?
This Academic Subscription is meant primarily for schools. The subscription fee will depend up on the number of students who may be using the publication at your school. We base the subscription price on enrollment numbers, affording you the most economical way of providing current, well-produced, educational content into your classrooms. If your school has a total enrollment of 10,000 students, but only 200 are studying Japanese, then the school would pay a fee based on those 200 students (for the Hiragana Times).

This opton was created to allow teachers full access to a series of books, without incurring the high costs of acquiring print books for each student. This is also a very simple way of encouraging reading without encumbering teachers and students with codes, payments, user logins and so on. This can be as easy as one password for the class to use, allowing full access to a complete series of Readers. Get the books you want, and need.
But we don't stop there. We are constantly working to improve our offering, with a keen eye on what is needed in a classroom, and not wasting time on elements which are just "fun to play with." Are we over "page-turning" yet? That was cute, but it never had any educational value, so was something we stayed away from. If it helps with learning, then it is of interest to us.
