Kanji are Chinese characters also used in Japanese writing since the early years of a writing system in Japan. The word “Kanji”, means “character of the Han Dynasty”, Chinese dynasty that lasted from 206 BC to 220 AD and responsible for standardizing the characters.

Unlike the Korean language, in which Kanji was replaced by Hangul, introduced in 1446 by King Sejong the Great, the fourth king of the Choson dynasty, in the Japanese language these tenebrous characters are still used and without a doubt, the learning of Kanji is one of the most discouraging points for Japanese students given its complexity.

Of course, this difficulty could be reduced if we could travel back in time and understand the cultural aspects and other issues present in each era, because, believe it or not, each Kanji has its reason for being; it is not a bunch of random scribbles as many may think.


Understanding some of these issues can make studying Kanji fun, thought-provoking rather than tedious and tedious.
