The renrakucho notebook plays an important role in facilitating written communication between you and your child's kindergarten, preschool, nursery school or daycare. It is important to have a good and close relationship with schoolteachers (sensei) since most of them aim to work together with parents on their child's education. However, it might be burdensome to write in Japanese if a parent is not fluent in the language. We hope you will find this website a useful guide to how and what you can write in a renrakucho.

As this website is not designed as a Japanese language improvement tool, there are no grammatical explanations or practice questions. If you wish to learn grammar or how to use the words and phrases in the examples, please contact your local Japanese school.
