Kanji Writing & Memorization

The best way to better remember how to better remember kanji for when you need to produce them would be to practice writing them. If you want to practice writing I recommend getting an app for it. I personally use Ringotan because I like that it’s an SRS and you can set it up to follow wanikani order.

That said, you should also ask yourself is this is something you need or want to spend the time on. There aren’t a whole lot of situations in which you’ll need to write kanji by hand without the ability to look them up. It’s also a skill you’ll lose somewhat if you don’t use it, like how many adults in Japan will forget how to write a some of the kanji they learned in school. If you have the time and/or enjoy the process of learning to write kanji though it does have some benefits, so it’s up to you.
