Kanji Learning Today

The full series of Kanji Learning Today 1, 2 and 3 covers 2,998 kanji characters.

New learners should focus on Kanji Learning Today volumes 1 and 2, which in combination cover the entire list of Joyo Kanji (常用漢字). These are the 2136 kanji taught in the Japanese school system and approved for use in government documents. Below, "Edu" is an abbrevation for Education, the kanji taught in elementary school, and "Grad" is an abbrevation for Graduation, the kanji taught at the secondary level.

Advanced learners can add Kanji Learning Today volume 3, which covers the list of Jinmei Kanji (人名用漢字). These are the kanji approved for use in names, in addition to the Joyo Kanji, by the Ministry of Justice. Many of these are not essential for general reading, but the kanji of Year 13, the first section of this volume, are used with some frequency.
