Japanese writing

 Loading... minimal set of hieroglyphs...
We very much regret, but it is the minimal set of hieroglyphs for studying

In fact, modern Japanese writing at the same time includes: Kanji, Katakana, Hirogana, Arabic numerals and English barbarisms (usually terms and abbreviations), rarely Romaji.

For Japanese students, Japanese is one of the most difficult subjects. A graduate of high school and even the institute knows only a small part of the hieroglyphs. There are several tests for knowing the characters:

Kyoku kanji (教育 汉字, “educational characters”) - the list consists of 1006 characters that Japanese children learn in elementary school (6 years of study). This list was first established in early 1946 and contained only 881 characters. In 1981, it was increased to a modern number. This list is divided by year of study. Its full name is "Gakunenbetsu Kanji" (学年 别 汉字 配 当 表, "Table of hieroglyphs by year of study").

Joyo Kanji (常用 汉字, “permanent use characters”) - the list consists of 1945 characters, which includes “Kyok Kanji” for elementary school and 939 characters for high school (3 years of study). Hieroglyphs that are not included in this list are usually accompanied by a furigan. The list was updated in early 1981, thereby replacing the old 1850 hieroglyphs “Toyo Kanji” (当 用 汉字), which was introduced in early 1946.

The main hieroglyph test in Japan is the Kanji Kent test (日本 汉字 能力 検 定 试 験, Nihon Kanji Noreku Kent Shiken). He tests the ability to read, translate, and write hieroglyphs. The test is conducted by the Japanese government and serves to test knowledge in schools and universities in Japan. Contains 10 basic levels. The most difficult of them checks the knowledge of 6000 characters.

For foreigners there is a lightweight test Nihongi noreku shiken (日本语 能力 试 験, JLPT). It contains 4 levels, the most difficult of which checks the knowledge of 1926 hieroglyphs.

Below is a fairly complete list of hieroglyphs ... if I haven't forgotten anything ... 😌

If you are not confused by the number of characters that you have to learn, then I suggest repeating the character tracing after the small animated selection (Approximately matches the Kanji Kent test 「日本 汉字 能力 検 定 试 験」) on the next page



Kanji

漢字 — Kanji are the adopted logographic Chinese characters that are used in the Japanese writing system. The Japanese term kanji for the Chinese characters literally means "Han characters". It is written with the same characters in the Chinese language to refer to the character writing system, hanzi.

Initially, kanji and Chinese Hanzi were no different from each other: Chinese characters were used to write Japanese text. However, at present there is a significant difference between Hanzi and Kanji: some hieroglyphs were created in Japan itself, some got a different meaning, besides, after World War II, the writing of many kanji was simplified.
