Japanese Word Games

Try out our online word games below, made to help you improve your vocabulary in Japanese. Apart from making learning more interesting, the games also keep track of the points you earn when you get words right, so you can see your progress on the Knowledge Map, Statistics and Rankings pages. Each game will score differently depending on how well you need to know the word to get it right in the game. The maximum you can score for a word is 10 points when playing the Test option of the Flash Cards game, which shows you know the word and how to spell it.
