Learn Kanji


Japanese School Grade

School Grade-1 to Grade-4 Kanji

There are total of 640 Kanji for Grade-1 to Grade-4.

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.
