I'd like to teach myself some various languages. Help me find some resources for Spanish and Japanese.

I'd like to brush up on four years of Spanish and start teaching myself Japanese. I'd like to do this in several different ways that may not necessarily include classes. (I work a job where I don't know my schedule more than about a month in advance and I travel, so a regularly scheduled class is right out.)
What I have right now:
2. Nintendo DS (and My Spanish Coach)
3. four or five beginner Japanese grammar books and kana books.
4. high speed internet
5. Spanish textbook left over from college
What I'd like to get:
1. I'd really really really love to get a DS game to learn to write kana. I'm willing to buy from an import site if it's a good product. Also, if you have recommendations for other language learning titles, that'd be helpful too.
2. If you have recommendations for podcasts and how to utilize them, send them over.
3. Websites that I could integrate into my studies.
4. Suggestions for formatting my individual studies. How much should I study and when? Other strategies?
If you have suggestions for shops/classes/bookstores/language schools, I'm in Chicago in Lincoln Park.
