About Mahjong Stars

galaxy-1192035_1280.jpg
 これまで海外のリーチ麻雀プレーヤーは言葉の違いでリーチ麻雀に関する日本語の記事、情報に触れる機会があまりありませんでしたが、Mahjong Stars(麻雀スターズ)は世界中のリーチ麻雀プレーヤーへいまの日本の麻雀情報をとどけ、リーチ麻雀を通して交流する場所になることを願い、より多くの人が読めるように本編は英語で作られています。
 日本語から英語への翻訳はリーチ麻雀を海外へ伝えたいというボランティアの人たちの情熱によって支えられています。またオリジナルの英語記事や動画なども、リーチ麻雀コミュニティーに活気が生まれ楽しさを分かち合いたいという共有する気持ちのもとに作られています。Mahjong Stars(麻雀スターズ)は彼らと一緒にリーチ麻雀を普及し、コミュニティーが健全に成長することを願っています。
 リーチ麻雀が楽しいという気持ちは世界共通です。いつか言語の違うプレーヤーと打牌で会話できる日がきます。ぜひ日本のみなさんも日本発祥のリーチ麻雀が世界へ広がる様子を見守って応援してください。
