Learning Japanese Kanji for Non-Japanese.

A flash card game for Nintendo DS showing Kanjis from various JLPT levels including their reading, stroke order and compound examples with English translation.

User guide

In true flashcard manner, it hides the to be learned parts. The parts like translations and (Kana)-readings can be revealed by holding down a button.

A writing module is also included which does basic character recognition of both Kanji and Hiragana/Katakana on the touch screen to write out the 5 example compounds for each Kanji.

Known issues

There is no way to save any kind of progress or even anything. It always starts out the same. So it could be seen almost like a prototype.
