5 thoughts on “My favourite kanji

  1. Actually, my favourite Kanji is not a Kanji but the chinese not-simplified version of a Kanji. Can I still participate?

  2. My favourite kanji is 知, because that means what I like to do the most in my life and what I think people on Earth deserve. Unfortunately I’m not artistically gifted…

  3. Petruza – you certainly can choose a Chinese character (simplified or traditional) as your favourite.
