Online Japanese resources

Post by oruchimaru » Mon 05.03.2010 12:36 pm

Does anyone know of any good websites for learning kanji? Something similar to kanagrams would be amazing. I love learning Japanese but I find learning kanji exhausting and something that would make it more fun would be ace.

Only problem is, the webapp is having some difficulties... Well, only for some European countries, it seems.
The most addictive and effective way, to read & learn Kanji... Visit

Kenitai-さん, did you ever get things straightened out with your access to Read the Kanji? I signed up with them based on your recommendation and I have to agree with you -- it's highly addictive! I'm learning, drilling, reinforcing and, best of all, having fun learning kanji! It has an added benefit of improving my Japanese typing speed. I haven't been at it long enough to know how effective it will be long-term, but so far it seems to be working for me. It is not my only kanji learning resource (I'm approaching my studies from a variety of sources) but it is definitely one of my most favorites.

I wish it had audio, though. Would be nice to hear the words to reinforce my pronunciation.

In any event, I cross my fingers that you've regained access to that site. Thank you for suggesting it!
