Yasuke! Versus Kanji™ – a neuroscience approach to Kanji retention

Yasuke! Versus Kanji is the home of:

“Kanji Mnemonics for the Classroom” (KMC) and its predeccessor Yakitori’s Kanji Stories

New here?  Wondering what this is all about?!


The Mission

This is a work in progress. Use the “Kanji navigation” box above to access other parts.

Below you’ll find the kanji list with radicals broken down. On another page there are also keyword worksheets for testing your recall of the kanji. Both are available in a paperback workbook. AND I am almost done making youtube videos of the entire list. Enjoy!
