10 Best Japanese Grammar Books in 2022 (Japanese Tutor-Reviewed)

According to the U.S. Foreign Service Institute, Japanese is perhaps the hardest language for native English speakers to learn. Of course, kanji is a significant barrier, but much of the difficulty actually lies in the fact that the Japanese grammar structure is so different from English’s. That’s why it’s important to have a good book to help you learn all that grammar.

Naturally, there are a ton of options, and not every one is going to work for you. That’s why we’ve put together this guide, reviewed by a certified Japanese tutor, to help you cut through the junk and pick the right book for you. In this guide, we’ll give you some tips to figure out what you want from your Japanese grammar book as well as a few of our favorites–separated by level–for you to start your search.

How to Choose a Japanese Grammar Book – Buying Guide

Buying learning materials can be tough and costly. This guide will help you figure out what you need from a grammar book so that you can get learning as quickly as possible without wasting time or money.

Choose a Book Based on Your Level

A book with 500 different grammar patterns isn’t very helpful for those who don’t know any Japanese. Nor is a colorful, comic-filled book with basic structures very helpful for advanced learners. Naturally, you should always choose a book that’s helpful for the level that you’re at.

Beginner: Look for an All-Inclusive Beginner Textbook that is Part of a Series

Beginner: Look for an All-Inclusive Beginner Textbook that is Part of a Series
For absolute beginners, just having a grammar book isn’t going to help much. Instead, you’re going to want to have a textbook that can teach you the writing system, vocabulary, and grammar together. 

Teaching all three means that when you’re looking up a grammar point you’ll have more context and examples available to help you figure out how to properly use it. You’ll also want robust English translations and explanations that leave no room for misunderstanding.

Books that are part of a series are good for beginners because when you finish one and are ready to move on to the next one, your intermediate textbook will already know what you have and haven’t learned, minimizing the risk of redundancy.

Intermediate: Look for Books with Context, like Reading Passages and Example Conversations

Intermediate: Look for Books with Context, like Reading Passages and Example Conversations
As an intermediate learner, you’ve mastered the basics. You can quickly flip any verb into its te-form and saying “it was warm” only takes you three tries to get right. You’re ready to transition from spitting one out-sentence answers to stringing together a longer response.
Look for books that provide short reading passages and conversations that utilize a number of beginner to intermediate grammar points. Not only will you learn how to use your new grammar points naturally, but it’ll also function as a review for all that you’ve learned before.

Advanced: Look for Reference Books

Advanced: Look for Reference Books
At this point, you probably already know enough grammar to get by on a day-to-day basis. So instead of something that teaches you grammar, it might be more helpful to have a book that can help you quickly figure out what “omoikiya” means when you stumble across it in your reading and move on.
A good reference book will also help you to differentiate the minute differences between similar usages and forms.
For those who are sufficiently advanced, it would be good to look for a textbook completely in Japanese. Not only will you be able to more fully understand the nuances in the language, but it can also serve as a good practice tool.

Find a Book That Fits Your Goals

By thinking about what your Japanese learning goals are, you can tailor your purchase to meet your needs as closely as possible.

Business-Focused Books for Work

Business-Focused Books for Work
If you’re learning Japanese for work, you’ve probably already figured out that Japanese work culture is pretty formal. Unsurprisingly, that also applies to the language used. Business situations often require not just different vocabulary, but also different grammar than you’d normally come across in everyday conversation.
In order to sound professional, you’re going to have to know how to use them together (after all, it can sound odd and amateurish to use formal honorific sonkei-go grammar patterns with informal kenjou-go vocabulary).

So, you want to find a comprehensive book that teaches you both grammar and vocabulary, preferably with some good examples and culture notes to show you how it’s done. (Yes, because there is a proper depth to bow–depending on your situation, you should either bob your head, go down 45 degrees or a full 90.)

Comprehensive Tomes for Long-Term Learners

Comprehensive Tomes for Long-Term Learners
If you’re in the earlier stages of learning Japanese but know that you’re going to keep studying the language for quite a while more, it might make sense to find a book that can be useful to you at every step.
So rather than just picking up the colorful, manga-covered beginner’s book (or in addition to it), it can pay off to go for the less exciting book that starts off slow and easy but builds up to things you’re not quite ready to handle yet. Unless you get bored easily—then we recommend going for the manga before giving up altogether.

Look for Books With Robust Practice Sections and Examples

Look for Books With Robust Practice Sections and Examples
The best way to learn a language is practice, practice, practice. Find a textbook that allows you to get your hands dirty testing out new grammar patterns and shows you exactly how to do it.
Look for some kind of hands-on approach, like short-answer and translation quizzes. Simple quizzes with only one right answer, such as fill-in-the-blank and multiple-choice questions, are good if you’re studying on your own, as you can check your answers against a key. 
If you are one of the lucky few that has a native friend or mentor–maybe you meet up with a language buddy at a café every week–then look for freer exercises like essay writing (especially if you’re advanced). You can’t check it against a key, but essay-writing is an important first step in teaching you to express your thoughts fluidly in conversation and talks.

Find a Book with Cultural Notes and Explanations

Find a Book with Cultural Notes and Explanations

Unlike English, in Japanese, your grammar often reflects the amount of respect you’re showing to another person and your personality. There are feminine and masculine grammatical patterns, as well as casual and polite.

There are grammatical patterns that are used exclusively in writing and some that are used exclusively in conversation. There are old-fashioned and defunct grammatical patterns you will hear if you like watching historical anime or NHK samurai dramas.
Explanations about the contexts in which it’s appropriate to use a certain grammar point in are necessary for intermediate and advanced learners—and it’s also just something fun for beginning learners as well.

Match Your Learning Style for Best Results: Manga Panels and Audio CDs

Match Your Learning Style for Best Results: Manga Panels and Audio CDs
Language learning can be particularly difficult and tedious. So to make sure that you’re optimizing your learning, be sure to choose a textbook that works for your learning style.
For those who need a little more stimulation, many Japanese textbooks have manga sections, since that’s what draws in a lot of learners to begin with.
Some books come with CDs with audio instruction and practice. CDs can reinforce the grammar point and help you remember it. Shadowing a CD can help with pronunciation and intonation, but only if the speakers on the CD sound natural and not robotic! You can also look for books made especially with shadowing in mind.
