Kanji and Kana:A Handbook of the Japanese Writing System is a uniquely comprehensive, systematized guide to the reading and writing of Japanese. Suitable for both classroom and independent study, it is designed to help the student achieve fluency quickly in all 1,945 Joyo Kanji, as well as the 284 Jinmei-yo Kanji.
It includes five example compounds for each entry, with a cross-reference number to the main entry. All kanji are fully indexed by on-kun readings, stroke count, and radical. Most kanji are presented in brush, pen, and printed forms, with the stroke order clearly indicated, and all characters are cross-referenced to The Kanji Dictionary and The New Nelson Japanese-English Character Dictionary.
