NHK Easy News

The NHK helpfully has a news website designed primarily for Japanese kids.


Everything has furigana (for which I have yet to find a mistake); there are Japanese rollover definitions of trickier words; and you can listen to passages being read out (although I’m not sure if it’s a real person or a machine).

There is also a Reddit for posting and correcting translations of these articles, which is more active than I would have imagined. Check it out!
