Let's climb Tokyo Skytree - level 60 in spring 2022

I went up a level at some point over the Golden Week holiday and… didn’t do much at any great speed lmao, but I’m back at it again. Ever since I stopped trying to go max speed I’ve had a much better time with WK and honestly having a pace that’s like 9-10 days per level has helped with retention. I might go fast again once I move away from Japan and don’t have constant immersion tiring me out…


Finally at the halfway point :pray:

Haven’t gotten the usual 9 days in a level like I’ve had for the longest time in these last couple of levels but I think this is alright.


Level 51 ~

Finally, back to reality. Past few weeks were so unbearable, I can feel the burnout. Even I already slowing down WK, but my work just getting more crazy. Now I’ll just take some rest and calm myself for few days while I’m chipping some leeches.



Level 20!! :smiley:

Feels like the crowds are thinning out a bit as I move from the 10-19 bracket into the 20-29 one… My rate has slowed a bit recently but still working my way up :+1:


Even if you are going a bit slower, it is still progress, right?


I thought I could stealthily reach level 60 unnoticed as I was to busy to really deal with it at the time. But you lot are too good! THANKS EVERYONE! :hugs:

I finally got round to writing my level 60 post too…


Nobody can hide from the ever watching eye of @cephaus, hehe


I hit level 11 earlier tonight so it is on to the painful months.


It’s been a long while since I’ve checked in on this thread, got to move myself from 18 to 25. Unfortunately I’ve been slowing down a bit these past couple levels, around 12 days each. Need to pick up my pace again, but I keep putting off those reviews on my days off.


Congrats Kuuru san :grin:



I should level up tomorrow (unless I fail multiple critical kanji). I decided that I’m not going to use the reorder script on the next level. I think it will help me to do all the related vocab soon after guru’ing the kanji instead of putting it off until after new radical and kanji lessons. I feel like I’ve gradually had more and more excess undone vocab lessons in each level so it’s a good time to slow down a bit. After all, I’m more than halfway through the levels and there’s still a year to go in our challenge. It’s a really crazy time at work… once the school year finishes I’ll have more time too. Last summer I read the first HP book in Japanese and this summer I plan to tackle #2! I bet I will have to look up a lot fewer words this time. :+1:


:cherry_blossom: Level 51 get! :cherry_blossom:

I’m still under a huge backlog of lessons, but hopefully next week my admission rush would come to an end and from 再来週 I could finally devote myself to digging this pile!


Thanks for the awesome graphs mmm333さん!^ - ^

Reached Level 15 yesterday :white_flower:

I’m going to cut down on lessons for a bit, my accuracy has been going down a bit and I’ve been reaching 150 reviews per day :japanese_ogre: :japanese_goblin:


Hello Observation deck 2.
44 to 45 in 15 days and 2 hours.


4000 burns! … now back to lessons…


Good job!! That’s a big milestone!


Got level 35 this morning, finally reaching the first observation deck! Only 10 more levels to go until the second observation deck, then 15 fast levels until the end. :partying_face:

I’m currently doing a fixed weekly schedule (lessons on wednesday 6PM and Sunday 8AM) which feels reasonable to keep up for the next few months. Got hit hard by KaniWani about a month ago, which I kept delaying until I somehow built up a surplus of 700 lessons. Managed to buckle down and get through the entire pile over the course of 2 weeks.

In between, I also managed to finish TLoZ: Link’s Awakening HD in Japanese! Grammatically, the text isn’t THAT complex and since I often played the original in Japanese I’d usually have a vague idea of what NPCs were trying to say. It even has an option to turn furigana on and off! (I made it easier on myself and just left them on the entire time :eyes:)

Currently looking for another game to play in Japanese, was surprisingly fun and good for passive exposure. If anyone has suggestions, feel free to share! :slight_smile:


I’m envious of your apprentice count.


maybe mario and sonic at the olympics? it’s on nintendo and you basically just wander around tokyo to complete missions (it’s more fun than that i promise), probably good for learning place names and sports stuff if you’re into that


Level 28 this morning.
Lessons and reviews are starting to pile up again. Maybe I’ll slow down at Level 30, depends how I feel.
