Learn Kanji


Japanese School Grade

Kanji related to Opposites

I have grouped a small set of 14 Japanese School Grade-1 Kanji that are related to Opposites

All these words have some similarity or they are related to other Kanji in meaning. We remember things by seeing the similarity or relation. Hence the grouping. Please note some Kanji may get repeated in other groups for the same reason.

This is an easy milestone to cross. Let us get started.
