It takes knowledge of 1,026 kanji characters to graduate from elementary school in Japan. That means that a sixth grader still needs another thousand or so to be able to read a newspaper or regular book, but those come in junior high and high school. To round off the elementary school portion of this complicated writing system that Japan borrowed from China somewhere around the 6th century, sixth graders need a final set of 191 kanji, all of which can all be found in the Complete Sixth Grade Kanji!
Published by Shogakukan, a specialist in educational books and with a history going back over a century, the Complete Sixth Grade Kanji is one of the best kanji study books in the Japanese market and very popular among schoolchildren and parents alike. It contains the sixth grade's 191 kanji with guidance for how to write them in the correct order as well as 480 examples of words using them, so you can go further than just learning the characters by themselves. If you already know the hiragana syllabary and some basic kanji, this great study guide will really enhance your Japanese!
