Japanese kanji and kana / by Wolfgang Hadamitzky and Mark Spahn. - Tokyo : Tuttle Shokai, 2012
- Each kana and kanji has a correct stroke order (usually up to down, left to right). It may not be the same as is used in Chinese for the same character.
- Do not try to learn too many - aim at about three a day, but revise everything you already know.
- Use every opportunity to write the kana and kanji you have learnt.
