Overview

This is an invaluable study guide for learning basic Japanese characters.

The first 100 Japanese Kanji is intended for beginning students, or experienced speakers who need to practice their written Japanese. Kanji are an essential part of the Japanese language and together with kana (hiragana and katakana) comprise the written components of Japanese.

This book presents the kanji characters that are most commonly used. They have been carefully selected for rapid and effective learning. Each kanji's readings, meanings, and common compounds are presented, and romanized pronunciations for English speakers (romanji) are included as well. Printed with gray guidelines, stroke order guides are designed to be traced over to teach students the standard sequence of strokes used to write each character. Three indexes at the back allow the characters to be looked up as with a dictionary or by their readings. Students who wish to practice writing kanji will find extra practice sheets available.

This book includes:

  • Step-by-step stroke order diagrams for each character.
  • Special boxes with grid lines to practice writing characters.
  • Words and phrases using each kanji.
  • Romanizations (romanji) to help identify and pronounce every word.
