When Faith and I started attending Twincentric Academy we met another set of twins named Aiko Hope and Akiko Grace who have Japanese parents. They grew up here but speak Japanese at home with their parents. Meeting Hope and Grace inspired me to learn some Japanese, too.
This is one of the best sites I found!
Easy Japanese is a site created for people who want to learn Japanese anyway. It is very kid friendly, I think with it's cute interface. Anybody of any age should enjoy it.
On the front page they have a word of the day.
Today's word of the day is Watashi.
There are a bunch of fun games to learn your Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. All of the games are fun and easy.
In the first picture above is the Kana quiz where you can see how much Kana you can recognize. This is for people who have been studying the writing.
The second picture shows a memory game which is better for beginners who are stilling getting confused.
The third picture is a game where you click on a piece of Hiragana and it shows you how to write it.
The fourth picture is Kana invaders. You can use the game to practice your Kana recognition.
They have a new area called Lessons which teaches you Japanese in lessons. It is not a game. It just shows you the words but it is interesting and if you are very interested in Japanese I think you will enjoy spending time in this area.
Personally, I think the best thing about the site is the writing games and the games that show you how to write. So, go check it out.
