The Kanji Character with the Largest Number of Strokes

Today I introduced you to the kanji character which has the largest number of strokes among daily-use kanji characters.

It is 鬱 (read as 'utsu'), which needs 29 brushstrokes.

鬱 can mean that plants grow thickly or things are active, but if you use it alone, it will mean "gloomy feeling" or "(clinical) depression."

I think that the action of writing this kanji will make you feel depressed.

Incidentally, the kanji with the second-largest number of strokes is 鑑 (read as 'kan/kagami'), which needs 23 brushstrokes.

鑑 means "example," "model," or "norm."
