Kanji Variants of the Kangxi Radicals (Japanese Simplified / Shinjitai)

Going for the hat trick, here is my attempt to also cover the variant Japanese Simplified (Shinjitai) forms of the Kangxi Radicals. I think together with the (forthcoming) pictures for the traditional variants this should cover almost everything. But do note that I don’t actually know any Japanese so please consider this to be very much provisional.

34 “winter” & 35 “winter variant”

I’m guessing these names stem from this character: ⇒



113 示 (礻) “altar”
wp-1449224659961.png
I don’t know if there’s any particular significance to the “spirit” / “altar” difference in names.


Next, pictures for those simplified Japanese (Kanji) characters that are different from the simplified Chinese equivalents.
