      Thank you very much for your comment. However, I confirmed that this kanji only has 5 strokes. You have to image writing with a brush. The horizontal line going from left to right and then down is counted as one stroke and not too.

        Hi Nicolas, I think spanishstudent is right. Even with the curved line counted as a single stroke, the total number of strokes in this kanji reaches 6. Try counting it along with the video 😉 Anyway, I have just discovered this website and it is excellent, thanks for it!

      • Hello,

        This kanji indeed has 6 strokes sorry for the mistake. Thank you for your help and please keep on checking for updates.

        Best Regards,
