Hi everyone! Hope you are all enjoying learning Japanese on a daily basis. 🙂

When it comes to learning Kanji’s, I believe the best way is to group them in a categories where you can learn a handful of them at the same time. Once you memorize them as a group, it will be easier to remember when you are ready to use them.

Today’s lesson is all about learning just 8 of the Kanji’s that are related to your body parts. These are simple and easy to learn Kanji’s so, once you go through this lesson, you will be ready to use them right away.
