Here is a list of projects using KanjiVG. If you want your project to appear here, please send a mail to our mailing list! Projects are listed in chronological order of addition to the list, so the last sites in the list are the most recently added.

Some of the projects which were formerly here seem to have disappeared or been discontinued, and so they have been removed from the list. They are commented out in the HTML file, so you can view them by viewing the HTML source of this page. If we have removed them in error, please contact us!
