Technical Details

The Kanji Project data consists of the following:

  • Kanji movies (Quicktime format)
  • Scanned brush-stoke Kanji images (GIF format, 200 by 200 pixels)
  • Kanji data pages (movie link, or embedded movie; Java applet "drawing pad" to practice the character on; stroke, reading and compound word information; links to soundfiles of the compound word examples)

We encourage Web page authors to link into the data in any way they choose. The form of the URLs of each type of data is described in the table below. Note that each item is identified by a unique, 4-digit number called the kuten code, represented in the table by KKKK. We have provided this Joyo Kanji Page to help you look up the kuten codes for individual Kanji characters.
