Tofugu is a stylish website founded by a man called Koichi. Originally a lone venture, his site is now run by a 14-man team and features an eclectic mix of posts on modern and traditional aspects of Japanese life. Most are illustrated with a colourful collection of photographs, videos and animation. It’s well built with each post providing a reference section to help visitors navigate to related articles and posts, found deeper in the site.
Many of the posts offer in-depth analysis and reviews on a diverse range of topics. Those looking to find out more about holiday locations will want to check out the travel guide section with offers information about numerous destinations throughout Japan. The site also encourages visitors to learn Japanese and offers numerous online resources and apps to help in this regard. One of Koichi’s mission statements is to make learning about Japanese culture fun – he’s certainly achieved this and provides plenty of kooky perspectives on one of the Far-East’s kookiest countries.
