But 男 is taught already, isn’t it? It’s on level 4. Unless I’m misunderstanding something

Isn’t kanji + vocabulary “男” on level 4?

EDIT: I just realized your profile says “02”. You’ll learn it when you get to 4.


Do you know how to add furigana? Thanks!

i was gonna say lol

Using that code outside code block would give you 漢字ふりがな

Just replace the 漢字 with a word and the ふりがな with the reading.


Thanks for the suggestions. The content team will look at this thread the next time they’re ready to push more updates!


There is a very good extension for it, so you just need to type the Kanji and it will automatically add it for you:

So if I type かい and select the kanji I want:

(かい) there we go, it automatically did it

Yes you can.

I guess I’ll use this for complaints too. You guys don’t teach , which is uttered in perhaps the most famous haiku, but you guys teach 自殺じさつ? What the hell?


Level 5

  • ()()たり exceptional reading

Level 6

  • 心地(ここち) a fairly common word with exceptional reading

Level 7

  • (おそ)わる another important Kun reading

Level 11

  • (いたわ)る no Kun reading is taught for the Kanji
  • (いたわ)

Level 23

  • (じゅん)(いっ)(きゅう) alternative meaning for 準. Used in Kanken levels.

Level 32

  • ()(まなこ) another important Kun reading

Level 36

  • ()(らく) meaningful words, not just proper names

Level 53

  • (じゅん)(きょう)(じゅ) vocabularies that coincide more with the provided Kanji meanings

Level 56

  • (じゅん)() considering there are already 大尉, 少尉, 中尉

I could easily agree with these as well, though (いち)() might also be added.


On that vein, they teach several specific ~込む compound verbs, but not the general case of the ~込む auxiliary verb itself (only the stand-alone version). As an auxiliary verb, 込む tends to add on a meaning of “into”.

見る to look > 見込む to look into
投げる to throw >投げ込む to throw into
飛ぶ to jump >飛び込む to jump into


I checked, and they do teach 株式市場. Oops, my bad.

The reading is different, and ()(じょう) is new to me too (while (いち)() isn’t).

I don’t think (しも) is taught in WaniKani yet. Perhaps vocabularies like (しも)ネタ.

It is also not a valid reading for WaniKani Kanji.

Also, I don’t think WaniKani handles alternate readings, like 上手(うわて), 下手(したて), 下手(しもて) - they are all marked as wrong, anyway.

@Mods it seems like these words should be a shake instead of wrong


I’ll let our team know and see how we’d like to address these :+1:


Not sure how common is this word, but I come to like it as a word, as well as using an exceptional reading – 心地(ここち)

Just a suggestion: the words for “the day before yesterday / after tomorrow”. I know they are pretty basic vocabulary, but they are quite common words with irregular readings of the kanji which could be a very valuable addition to WK. I always kinda forget how they are supposed to be read or written…

明後日あさって and 一昨日おととい

In addition, their week/month/year counterparts could be added for the sake of completion. Some are already in WK, so I can’t see a reason why not to add the others.

再来週さらいしゅう and 先々週せんせんしゅう (only the first one is in WK)
再来月さらいげつ and 先々月せんせんげつ (both already in WK)
再来年さらいねん and 一昨年おととし (none in WK)


I copied the suggestions to here.

I’ve found this one https://www.wanikani.com/kanji/岐 = Branch off, but default vocabularies are only place names, 岐阜(ぎふ) and 岐阜県(ぎふけん), which also use a non-standard (表外) reading (ぎ).

Perhaps some vocabularies to suggest would be 多岐(たき),   分岐点(ぶんきてん),   岐路(きろ).
