 kc says: 'kanji' characters are used to replace kana in more advanced japanese. the kanji characters are chinese based
characters but the japanese only use around 2000 of them, there are many more modern chinese characters

 kc says: the kanji characters given here are the japanese counting characters, more characters soon
