If you're interested in this shop, you are obviously interested in Japan and its culture, so perhaps it's time you took a swing at its language, without a doubt one of the most difficult in the world. And one of the hardest parts is learning the kanji, the logographic Chinese characters that the Japanese have been using for their own writing system for the last 1,500 years. It might not surprise you to hear that the Japanese too find learning and remembering kanji hard and this is why they use learning books like Complete First Grade Kanji.
Created by Shogakukan, one of Japan's biggest publishing companies with a history going back to 1922, the Complete First Grade Kanji is a study guide for the first grade of elementary school. In its 122 B5 pages, you will find the first 80 kanji that all Japanese come across as they start their journey in learning to read their native language. Using the hiragana syllabary (which is like an alphabet, so its easy to learn), the book teaches you words and the kanji characters needed to write them and, by the time you have finished it, you will have taken your first steps in learning to read Japanese!
