Let’s go to libraries!
There are not only books, but also comics, magazines and CDs in Japanese libraries.
You can use the computer to search for books you want to read or CDs you want to listen to, make reservations, or order books and other materials you want to read from other libraries. So, you can be exposed to tons of Japanese materials without spending a lot of money.
Anyone who is registered as a resident in Japan can get a library card and borrow books and CDs. (There are restrictions such as borrowing less than 10 books per week at a time.)
In Tokyo, libraries are operated by each ward. Therefore, you can register at the library in the ward near your home or school. To register, you will need your "Residence Card" and "Student ID Card".
Most libraries also have study spaces where students can study in a quiet environment before or after TCJ classes, or on weekends and holidays. They are very convenient facilities, so take advantage of them!
