N2 JLPT Kanji List


Open enrollment for Ricardo Cruz Nihongo Premium's Japanese course! Click make your registration!

In this article we will see a complete list of N2 ideograms or Kanji used in JLPT, a Japanese language proficiency test. A total of 387 Kanji organized by the JLPT table with their kun and on readings and their meanings. 

We don't put Romanized readings, not least because it doesn't make much sense to do that. If you are already studying N2 your minimum obligation is to know how to read hiragana and katakana.

Does Kanji N2 have meanings? 

We don't want you to be looking for the meaning of Japanese ideograms, because they don't exist. Most of the time they just pass on a certain idea or concept according to the words in which they compose. 

An ideogram alone will not convey the idea of anything at all, the meanings you will see in this article are just a few words and similar in which they compose. Get out of your head that ideograms have meanings! 

There are exceptions where isolated ideograms are used literally as words as in the case of kuchi [口] which means mouth, chikara [力] which means strength, inu [犬] which means dog and many other exceptions. 

Lists ideograms and Kanji N2

The translation is done from English to Japanese and has several meanings in a single ideogram. This does not necessarily mean that this kanji means that, but that perhaps a word composed with that kanji has that meaning. 

Japanese ideograms usually give the idea of something, it may not make sense to imagine that idea in isolation. The translations may not be 100% accurate, if you want to search further we recommend jisho.
