Where can I download the “Kanji Book”?
Kanji Book isn’t a regular book. It’s a website to learn Japanese kanji and vocabulary. Since most of the Japanese vocabulary can be studied on Kanji Book, it can be compared to a dictionary of sorts. In broader terms, a dictionary is also a book and so I thought, let’s combine Kanji and book. Besides, good domain names are hard to come by today and this one was available :-).
