About Kanji review

This website started out as a personal tool to help me review kanji in a systematic way. There are many websites, books and apps out there that help you learn and review kanji, but I felt they did not do exactly what I wanted.

What I wanted was:

  • a pace of several kanji a day instead of just one
  • immediately view the most used compounds on the same page
  • see those compounds being used in context through example sentences

Additionally, I wanted something easy and low maintenance that I could use long-term. I noticed that other websites were based on freely available dictionary files, so I took a shot at it since I’ve had experience in web programming. The result is what you can see on this website.

Keep in mind that this website is not targeted towards the beginner level, but intended for the intermediate and advanced student of Japanese. The example sentences in each kanji level require an intermediate to advanced reading level. Nevertheless, you can use this website to review any JLPT kanji level or even study the characters for the first time.

This site uses the EDICT and KANJIDIC dictionary files. These files are the property of the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group, and are used in conformance with the Group’s licence. In addition, I have used my own example sentences.
