For some reason the second and third iterations have hardly any reviews online, and I don’t recall seeing them talked about on this subreddit. I currently own the first book though I have yet to dig inbut RTK 2 is currently on amazon.

Remembering the Kanji III: Writing and Reading Japanese Characters for Upper-Level Proficiency

I’m aware that RTK 2 simply takes the established Kanji from 1 and teaches the readings. RTK 3 does both–it introduces new Kanji in the vein of the first book, then teaches the readings in the vein of the second. Is RTK 2 an effective way to learn the readings of knaji Kanji from book 1?

Or is there a better resource out there for the readings. I feel like the answer to this would also directly give me the answer for book 3.

Anyone have experience with either volumes 2 or 3? RTK 2 IS meant to be done alongside other study, on the other hand.

He says in the introduction that it’s quite suited to reading out of order and dipping in and out, as you need. There’s a lot of great ideas in it that will help you learn readings, in particular the signal primitives. You may notice signal primitives without his help, but his book has everything already collated into groups, whose exceptions are made clear to avoid errors.


The book also does cover compounds per kanji so that you have a basis of real words, but expects you to have a vocabulary enough to know these already and to know other examples of compounds.

RTK 2 is different from RTK 1, because it is a less novel approach and it should fit around any study approach rather than a custom one. Don’t think you won’t benefit from all the work that went into RTK 2 though, it will make your studies easier.

ksnji Book2 is not worth your time. Book 3 doesnt serve a real purpose, as you wont rely on rtk method once you need those rarer kanji.

Memorizing individual kanji pronunciation doesnt give you real benefit as you still dont know which pronunciation to go with a particular kanji combination.

Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji, book 2 and 3? : LearnJapanese

Its generally agreed to be better to learn it as you learn vocab. The reason RTK tends to be disliked on here is because you learn zero pronounciation with the first book, just some vague keywords.

In book II you learn pronounciations, however you don’t learn when to use which reading for which vocabulary, and you don’t learn when readings get shortened or rendaku’d. So basically, first you spend months not learning how to pronounce kanji and then you spend months learning readings for kanji of which you don’t have any idea when to use which. The more effective thee is to learn how kanji are pronounced in context of vocabulary, so that you learn about exceptions and get some immediate use out of it.

I agree, also, RTK is comparably haphazard to other resources. Also, the way KLC is taught seems to be more in line with scientific research on how rememnering a language works, from first principles.

RTK just tells you that you need to build up a system for remembering Kanji and that it is done by following the book and that the reason is because he says it works. Being originally knji init’s no surprise that the knowledge becomes outdated after 40 years and that more well researched resources and methodology come out to replace it.
