Jump to navigation Jump to search

This category collects those 国字 (kokuji, Japanese-coined characters) which are used only in Japan. Japanese-coined characters used not only in Japan should instead be found in Japanese-coined CJKV characters used outside Japanese.

CJKV Characters are the characters of the Chinese writing system but were also formerly used in North Korea and Vietnam and continue in use also in Japan and occasionally South Korea. Some countries invented a few of their own characters which were never used in China.

For characters used in China, but simplified to a different form in Japan and in China, see instead CJKV characters simplified differently in Japan and China.
