Kanji Connect

By KanjiGames

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


The most ATTRACTIVE and ENGAGING mobile game out there to study Japanese kanji and vocabulary! !

Track your progress while you actually enjoy learning over 1000 kanji and 6000 common words, from JLPT N5 up to N2. (Two sets of 25 JLPTN5 kanji are unlocked by default, and just a single in-app purchase unlocks ALL the other levels!)

The Kanji Connect app also provides reference lists for each kanji, listing its meanings, readings and common compounds.

*Try the online Flash version of this and other educational Japanese language games at the following website:


- “Of all the kanji apps I have, I use this the most because it’s actually fun to study with”

- "Jewel of an app - I really like this game. It stands out from all the other generic ones that just flashcard the dictionary at you."

- “As a serious student of Japanese here on Tokyo, it's great to find a fresh and fun way to engage with kanji. The game is challenging and addictive - key points for staying motivated!”

- “This game is simple but perfect”

- “I got back into studying kanji thanks to this game - sure is better than flashcards! “


1) Options to have either the kanji (4x4) or the hiragana (5x5) in the grid.

2) Review list after each game, tracking progress of each word with colored star system.

3) Reference flashcards display information for each kanji - form, readings, meanings, and useful example compounds.

4) Main screen shows grid overview of all kanji in current level, just tap to see flashcard view. Shading of grid intuitively indicates progress through each kanji's compounds.

This package uses the EDICT and KANJIDIC dictionary files. These files are the property of the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group, and are used in conformance with the Group's licence.

What's New in Version 1.9

- Fixed bug in AIRv19 that caused app to crash.

So much fun! Need more kanji! 😍

I downloaded this months ago and forgot about it. I decided to try it today to kill time waiting for my laundry to finish, and it's addictive! It's like all those mindless freemium games, only educational. I could play this all day, and 3$ is a steal! I hope they add even more kanji so I can give them more money! 🤑

Very Helpful!

Making sure I write a review so this gets the olive it deserves. Very well created app that does its job well. Fun quick games that keep you trying to get a higher score. Really like that is says the words out loud and regulates hints. Thank you for developing this!

Love it -- slight request

This app is a fun way to learn and expand vocabulary and Kanji knowledge.

A slight request: my counter for green stars is off the right edge of the screenvon my iPhone 7 (I'm already JLPT N3 certified, so I have a large number in the yellow stars.) If possible a little tweak to the formatting would let me see my count...

Thanks for the great app!
