JLPT 1 Kanji collection, the fifth one hundred words

I have already collected 400 Japanese words in the previous articles and I am expanding my lists in the following article. The whole collection will include 1178 words that might help you to prepare for the JLPT 1 examination. I would like to emphasize that this does not mean that you can pass the exam for sure. You will need to train your grammar, listening and reading knowledge as well, but this is not a bad start I guess. Feel free to use the material!

Yamaga City in Japan


You can take the test in major cities all over Japan.This level requires about 1000 hours of in classroom study to complete. But, unless you are a genius, you will most definitely have to supplement that with a lot of external studying and practicing. By spending just a few minutes every day practicing and reviewing Kanji, you can master JLPT N1 Kanji.

And then here it is. Katakana or hiragana readings and meanings also included in the list. If you feel like you still need to practice the hiragana or the katakana alphabet, you can do so by clicking on them.
