A must-have for anyone learning Japanese kanji!

This game is based off a real company in Tokyo, Japan - IshousKeikaku. Grow this company from 3 to 24 employees while upgrading technology. As everyone gets better at Kanji, so will you!

By JapaneseVideocast, fun and effective language learning!

Build a company by using your knowledge of Japanese kanji. Learn kanji with this fun game or use your current expertise of kanji to build an empire -- this app is really for everyone.

Why is this game special?

-- Kanji radicals.
Words are grouped by kanji radicals -- so they each contain something familiar. This makes the game more informative but also challenging at the same time because you have to be able to distinguish similar kanji.

-- Kanji details
Because of the Kanji grouping, you will need to pay closer attention to the details. After playing this game, you will easily be able to spot the difference between 木 and 本 or 未 and 末!

-- Simplicity
The process to learn Kanji doesn't have to be complicated. With only two choices to choose from at any time, the game will be very simple and easy to play. This game is designed to be payed with one hand so you can even play while on the busy Tokyo subways.

-- Kanji Repition - Never Forget
Learn Kanji Corp uses a special algorithm for showing you newer Kanji more often than older Kanji. This means you will be learning new Kanji characters but will still be shown older ones you learned enough so you won't forget.

-- Native Voice
Listen to the pronunciation of each character as you build your Kanji empire. Engage your audio and visual senses with built-in speech.

-- English Learners
Already know kanji? We anticipated many people who just want a fun kanji game will try this app out as well. You can customize the voice to be in English so you can work on learning English as well.

-- Kanji Kanji, More Kanji
Each level consists of just six kanji characters grouped in an intuitive fashion. With over 40 levels and counting, you will learn over 240 kanji characters. You don't have to start from scratch either! You can get word packages to start you off at your current desired level.

-- Did I forget to mention FUN!?
We know better than anyone that learning Kanji with flashcards is tedious and boring. This is why this game will be more effective. We seek to engage you to maximize your Kanji learning experience.

-- Over 20 characters
You can hire a staff of 24 people making Kanji paintings for you. Each employee can then be trained to level up and become more accurate as well as earn more money per kanji.

-- Furniture and Technology
Like a real company, you also have the option to buy furniture and upgrade your technology. Go from painting on canvases to Macintosh computers to Virtual Reality machines!

-- Different Game Modes
Its amazing what can be done with just 2 buttons. We mix in different game modes to keep you entertained. There are different modes of displaying and picking Kanji. The default mode is True/False but we also entertain you with kanji buttons and definition buttons as well.

-- Game Boosts and Duels
Unlock game boosts to boost your revenue by hiring more and more managers. You will also be randomly challenged to duels where you can earn valuable diamonds.

10 Different achievements so you can challenge your friends. Achievements range from easy to difficult, but they can all be won without spending a dime!

-- Leaderboards
2 different leaderboards to rank in. You can either be a Kanji Corp mogul and earn more money than anyone else or you can display your skills and get the highest streak in row. Leaderboards will be reseted regularly and winners will be posted at

Really great app.


This is an awesome little game that really helps you learn a ton of kanji. The whole concept of turning it into a leveling system is the perfect incentivized way that I learn best from. The whole game itself is not very deep (or pleasing to the eye), but those features are all beside the true purpose of the app. I don’t ever write reviews, but this is a really nice learning app!

Not engaging


If you onow the kanji and you buy the levels quickly, it turns into a bitnof a grind. Don't buy more floors as soon as you can. The graphics are disheartening after a while because they're so choppy.

Best Kanji App for beginners


I’ve leaned over 100 kanji in 2 weeks, really helps my reading progress
