JLPT N1 KANJI STUDY DAY 42: 421~430/1017

Welcome back! Today’s new kanji, from numbers #421-430. We’re really racking up the numbers of kanji added to our mental databases huh? And in not too long we will be halfway there! 500 is fast approaching.

And the good thing about today’s list is in my opinion, it’s fairly easy compared to some of the other days, particularly the last half of them. Not very difficult to write and chances are you may already be familiar with them, or have at least seen them around in your earlier studies.

Happy studying!
