This classic, best-selling learning and reference work, trusted by beginning and intermediate Japanese language students since 1959, is now being offered as a fourth edition and is thoroughly revised and up-to-date. Key features on this revised edition include:

• The most recent changes prescribed by the Japanese Ministry of Education

• Covering all the 2,136 characters in the “General Use,” Joyo Kanji set

• Detailing coverage of the 1,009 “Essential” Japanese characters arranged by grade for children in the first six years of grade school

• The Kanji characters are based more on their frequency in everyday language than the complexity of their composition
