DRAWING

Note There is a problem with the stroke order in some of these kanji, I'm aware of it but have no time to fix it, like all online information it should be taken with a (large) grain of salt. To be clear: the problem is in the image drawing program not the Taka database.

Kanji drawing map

  • The green dot is the starting point!
  • Name above the completed radical is the reading
  • Name below the completed radical is the radical name
  • If you find an error, please email kanji at mahou.org

The stroke order information has been borrowed from the Taka Kanji Database
