Jōyō Kanji List 常用漢字一覧表

This is a list of the 1,945 Joyo Kanji (常用漢字), otherwise known as the “daily use” or “general use” characters. These were designated by Japan’s Ministry of Education in 1981 as the standard characters to be used in government publications, and students graduating from secondary schools are expected to have mastered them. Since most newspapers and similar publications stick pretty closely to these, mastering them is an important step towards attaining literacy in Japanese.

These aren’t all of the kanji you’ll encounter when you read and write Japanese, though. I’ve made a list of the roughly 6,355 kanji most of us will ever encounter in Japanese if you’re planning to go beyond the Joyo Kanji.

Disclaimer

This list wouldn’t have been possible without Mr. Yamamoto’s incredibly useful Web Gloss (dead link) site, and Jim Breen’s dictionary. I have not yet gone through the list to confirm the accuracy of every entry, and it is best used in conjunction with published dictionaries that have been more rigorously edited. That said, if you find any mistakes, please let me know!

Arrangement

The list below is arranged alphabetically with the character itself in heavy brackets 【 】, the on-reading (音読み) in katakana, the kun-reading (訓読み) in hiragana, and the meaning in English.

Tips for Using the List

Press Ctrl+F on your keyboard, then paste or enter the kanji, kanji reading, or kanji meaning into the search field. The list is arranged roughly alphabetically by on-reading.
