Kanji Hacks 漢字の覚え方

How to memorize kanji so they stick


Free kana & kanji flashcards! Woo hoo!

I am just getting started with these, and I would appreciate your feedback. Here’s what I have so far:

Hiragana Flashcards (textbook font)

Hiragana Flashcards (handwriting font)

Katakana Flashcards (textbook font)

Katakana Flashcards (handwriting font)

Kanji Flash Cards Grade 1

Kanji Flash Cards Grade 1 (handwriting font)

Don’t forget to print double sided when you try these. 😉

The kana flashcards include the rarely used characters ゐ and ゑ. You probably won’t be required to learn these, but I thought I would include them for those who are interested. The drawback there is that there is one lonely kana on the last page of the flashcard set. Sorry!

Please let me know how you like these by clicking one of the buttons below:

And just FYI, I am only doing single kanji at the moment, not compounds. I will be doing compounds in the future, once I power through all the individual kanji.

However, I would be interested to know which compounds would be useful for everyone. You could really help me out by letting me know how you are studying so I know where to start. What books are you using to learn kanji? Let me know in the comments!



  1. Those look great and can’t wait for more! Single kanji is fine for now, but I would eventually add compounds. Thanks again!

  2. Hi! Me again. I think that the flashcards are great! They’re a little small though. Great job and thanks for doing this. Can’t wait for more.

    • Thanks for the feedback. I’ll work on making a larger version and see what size is more popular. 🙂
