Welcome to Japan, a country of Kanji

The aims of this page

1. To help foreign people living in Japan to cope with kanji in everyday life.

2. To support foreign people who are interested in learning practical Kanji and to enhance their understanding of the sources of the many Kanji compounds.

We hope that this web-site will help those who encounter problems when reading Kanji-only street signs, or when trying to read the buttons on Japanese domestic appliances. Those who are studying Japanese for the Proficency Test (levels 3 and 4) should also find this web-site of value.
