JLPT Applications are sold in major bookstores. But what if you don’t have a major bookstore near you? Deas from Rocking In Hakata (a great blog btw, check it out!) had this problem and here’s what he had to say about it:
If you live in rural Japan, like me, you may only be able to purchase the JLPT application packet at one single bookstore far, far away from you. I’m in Ehime, and there is ONE store in Matsuyama (the capital) that carries the packets according to the official JLPT site. Sheesh. My solution? Hit Rakuten and search for it. Guess what? I found it. It’s called 日本語能力試験受験案内（出願書類付き）（2008）. It’s published by 凡人社 (Bonjinsya), and is available for ￥476. That’s sweet. It’s the guide to this year’s test and the application materials all in one. And I simply ordered my study books at the same time to knock the price of shipping to 0 yen. Sweet. Now I don’t have to go to the JLPT application packet, it has to come to me.
Here’s a direct link: JLPT Application at Rakuten
It’s not too late. You still have about 2 weeks before the application deadline. That’s plenty of time to order yourself an application and send it in.
Thanks Deas!Like this post? Give me the Thumbs Up!
