Summary. The objective of this paper is twofold: 1) to shed light on the challenges faced by non-Japanese speakers when learning the Japanese kanji script and highlight some of the learning strategies they adopt; 2) to present the results of a survey on students' learning strategies and attitudes towards teaching and learning the Japanese kanji script. Ninety students of Japanese from four universities in the East European region participated in the survey: the University of Ljubljana, the University of Belgrade, the University of Zagreb, and the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula. The research results show that students consider learning kanji in context as the most effective strategy for acquiring the Japanese kanji script. Furthermore, the students' responses indicate a strong need for a multi-semester course that focuses solely on teaching and learning the Japanese kanji script.
