School Grade-1 Kanji

There are total of 80 Kanji in Grade-1.

The Kanji lists are provided in a table that contains Kanji and its OnYomi, KunYomi and Meaning. OnYomi and KunYomi represents reading of a Kanji. In most of the cases, if a Kanji is used alone, then the KunYomi reading is used and if that Kanji is combined with another Kanji then OnYomi reading is used.

I have divided these Kanji into different groups.
This helped me learn faster and repeated revision in intervals helped retain the knowledge.

NOTE: The below list, which has 80 Kanji are unique to Grade-1 ONLY - meaning it is not cumulative of Grade-1 to Grade-1 Kanji. If you would like to access cumulative of Grade-1 to Grade-1 Kanji, click here.
