Commonly known as the Kanji Kentei (漢字検定), or the shorter Kanken (漢検), The Japan Kanji Aptitude Tests are conducted three times a year, and vary from level 10 (80 characters) to level 1 (6000 characters).

The test examines not only the ability to read and write kanji, but also the ability to understand their meanings, to use them correctly in sentences, and to identify correct stroke order. Although the test was originally developed for native Japanese speakers, non-native speakers may also take the tests.

The test is administered by the Japan Kanji Aptitude Testing Foundation (日本漢字能力検定協会, Nihon Kanji Nōryoku Kentei Kyōkai)

Levels from 7 upwards are Ministry approved. Though designed for Japanese students, it is equally possible for non-natives to take and pass these exams.
