We are sorry to announce that Oh My Japan will end service on December 23, 2022.

As of today, we are no longer accepting paid memberships. Current paid members who would like a refund can contact us via the contact form.

On December 23, the site will be locked and it will no longer be possible to log in or send messages.

The site will be shutdown completely by the end of 2022.

Oh My Japan may one day return as a phone app, but that will require a complete redesign that is a few years away, and the site's business is not sustainable as is.

On July 7, 2012, Oh My Japan was opened to the public. We chose the date of Tanabata because of its significance as a Japanese holiday about the connections between people (Wikipedia entry on Tanabata).

Seven years ago, we started with just one member; today, more than 66,000 people have joined the site, and more than half a million messages have been exchanged. Take a look at how our membership has changed over time.

Upgrade to a paid membership today.
