Remembering The Kanji Flash Cards

These are printable kanji flash cards on PDF that can be used along with the books Remembering The Kanji I, II, and III by James Heisig. These books and flash cards have been a great help for me when I was studying Kanji. Give them a try...

Card Card Layout
Side A contains the kanji in two fonts and the following: A "-" means the information is not available.

Side B contains the Remembering The Kanji keyword in bold, and then other keywords found in KANJIDIC. The onyomi is shown in katakana, and kunyomi in hiragana.

Printing Instructions
Using the latest Adobe Acobat Reader:
  1. Set PAGE SCALING to NONE to get the ideal size on an 8.5" x 11" stock. Depending on the paper size and the printer that is used, this may need to be changed
  2. Print with SUBSET set to ODD PAGES.
  3. Flip the stack of cards, re-feed.
  4. Print with SUBSET set to EVEN PAGES.
For best results, print them on thick cardstocks available from most office supply stores.
