Learn Japanese Visually using hand-drawn pictures and interesting stories to make Japanese really stick. Tear down the kanji wall in the most fun way imaginable!

Replace as much dull memorization as possible with exciting pictures and funny stories with uchisen. Once you make a connection to a Japanese character in your brain, we'll create a flashcard of it for you so you can cement it in your brain over time, saving countless hours of drilling.

Using our Spaced Repetition System (SRS) you can efficiently memorize more than 2000 kanji and 6000 vocabulary words. We'll keep track of what flashcards you see and when, so you never get bombarded with too many reviews at once.

Right now there are currently over 300 mnemonic pictures drawn. This is roughly equivalent to the amount taught during your first year in a college Japanese course. Memorize this in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost!
