Bret Mayer, a.k.a. Busensei, is a kanji master from New Jersey. He passed level 1 of the Japan Kanji Aptitude Test, a feat that is extremely difficult even for a native Japanese speaker. Bret will teach us about the history of how kanji came to take its current shape and about the secrets behind the characters. The first kanji he showed us was “亀,” which means “turtle.” Bret came to get interested in kanji after seeing this kanji written on the clothes of the characters in the popular anime “Dragon Ball.” Come and explore the deep and mystical world of kanji with Busensei.
