This is an invaluable study guide for learning Japanese characters.

This beginner kanji guide is intended for beginning students and teaches characters that have been carefully selected and sequenced for rapid and effective learning. Each kanji is shown separately on a single page, along with its different readings, its English meanings, romaji (romanization), a stroke-order guide and ample space for writing practice.
