Japanese Kanji Study - 漢字学習

  Continue to app

Publisher Description

Kanji Study is my ongoing project that tries to be a helpful and easy-to-use tool for learning Japanese kanji.
Study with flashcards, customizable quizzes and writing challenges. Each kanji has detailed information and many examples. The app provides a powerful search tool for looking up kanji by radicals, stroke count and more. You can also make custom sets to match your textbooks or focus on the kanji you struggle with the most.

The app is
entirely free; however, the free version has no ads and offers unlimited study for hiragana, katakana, radicals and beginner kanji. Kanji search and ranking features are also completely unrestricted. The one-time upgrade unlocks the remaining kanji study groups and allows you to create your own custom sets. It also supports the continued development of this project.
