The hardest part of studying Japanese is Kanji.
Some kanjis can be written in one stroke, and some kanji have dozens of strokes.
Among them, I collected kanji characters with the largest number of strokes.
There are imaginary kanjis, but in this article, I picked up the official kanjis that exist in Unicode.
1.Tetsu 64 strokes
This is the kanji with the largest number of strokes in Unicode.
This means a lot of words, Talkative.
It is a kanji composed of four “龍(dragon)”s and was once used as a name.
2.Sei 60 strokes
This also means a lot of words, Talkative.
It is a kanji composed of four “興(interesting)”.
3.Iwakura 53 strokes
This is a kanji born in Japan.
This kanji means the shrine of God.
This appeared for the first time in “Tenshoju Hachinenhon” in 1590.
4.Hou 52 strokes
This kanji means the sound of thunder.
and is made up of four “lightning(雷)”s.
5.Jin 49 strokes
This kanji means dust and dirt.
This is a kanji character that does not exist in Unicode and has a large number of strokes. I read this kanji as Taito. It is a kanji combining “䨺(Tai)”and”龘(Tou)”, and it used to exist as a surname, but there is currently no person with such a surname.
Regular use kanji are kanji learned in compulsory education, and are kanji that all Japanese people are required to be able to write by junior high school.
Among them, “鬱(Utsu)” has the largest number of strokes.
“Utsu” means melancholy or depression, and also means that the grass is overgrown.
All kanji relating to fish and shellfish put “魚(fish)” as part of kanji.
There is no need to remember at all, as it is used less often in Japan.
