Yay! More simple kanji!

I was very happy when opening up my kanji book today to see that like yesterday, the second half of today’s list is rather simple to write (compared to many other N1 level kanji) and some were definitely recognizable right away as I have seen them pretty often, even from previously studied Kanji words from this book.
