This book covers all of the 1,945 characters in the General Use set of Japanese characters, with particularly detailed coverage of the 1,009 Essential characters that Japanese children must learn in the first six years of grade school. And since Japanese publications must, by law, provide supplementary phonetic readings for any character not included in the General Use set, this invaluable reference contains everything you need to know to start reading Japanese.

A good book for those learning Japanese. Each of the first 1006 kanji have digrams showing their stroke order, 'on' (Chinese based) readings, and 'kun' (Japanese based) reading clearly disinguised, and example words. The rest of the 939 appear with on and kun readings and English meanings. In the front of the book there is a clear explanation guide. For lookin up characters, there is a section based on their Japanese reading, and a stroke count section.
