Learning Japanese Kanji

All of our Japanese Kanji videos can be seen on our YouTube channel Kanji Memories and its Learning Japanese Kanji playlist. Alternatively, there is a link below to the YouTube video for this particular Japanese Kanji. There is also an embedded copy of the video towards the bottom of the page, but that may not be available on your device for technical reasons. See also the text translations and the Kanji memories memory card. Also, for a quick way to find this website we have Learn the JLPT as a domain name to return here and learn Japanese Kanji for free.
