I was wondering if anyone had a list of unpopular (or rarely used Kanji) that WaniKani teaches you. I understand the point of learning easily recognizable Kanji but when I try some words (里心 for example) I get some funny looks or laughs. This isn’t a huge issue as most people find it interesting to discover Kanji they are unfamiliar with. Although if there were some indication of how common the word is colloquially that would be a big help.
Side note: I have also found it interesting that some of my Japanese friends tell me that Kanji aren’t used often (米国 for instance as opposed America in Katakana) but it is actually really useful for me to learn. Working at an online center now at an Eikaiwa I have to constantly switch the keyboard language and sometimes the computer is in Japanese. It is actually really helpful to be able to differentiate American English from UK English and this is the Kanji that is used for it.
