TAKO - zabavna Japonščina - たのしいスロベニア語

Do you know Slovenia? It is a small and a very beautiful country in Central Europe.
Do you know Japan? It is an island country in East Asia with a distinct culture.

Although Slovenian and Japanese words have different meanings, there are many words with similar pronunciation.
We created fun animations, focusing on words that children in both countries know.

We would be very happy if you could feel closer to Slovenia and Japan.
