When I was in Japan, I used to watch Go programs on Japanese TV and I have a collection of DVD recordings. I used to browse through Second-hand bookshops in Tokyo? and I have a large collection of second-hand Japanese go books.
The iPad is a wonderful accessory for go players. I use it for studying go and Japanese, as well as for other purposes.
