Common Japanese Fonts?

I started WaniKani, and soon realized there are many japanese fonts.

So what are the most common Japanese fonts? I would prefer to not be confused when looking at anything with more stylized or different fonts.



Yep, fonts are pretty interesting, especially when it comes to handwriting :sweat_smile:

If you want to practice reading various different fonts, you can install this userscript which will display your lessons and reviews in a random font out of those you have installed in your system (you can always hover over them with your mouse to return them back to the standard font):


I am using Noto Sans CJK JP.
CJK stands for China-Japan-Korea so it is important to choose the JP version.
