Hi, I’m SATO Shingo, a native speaker with more than 10 years of experience in teaching Japanese.
In this post, you can make a copy of a JLPT N3 vocabulary list in Google Sheets. It is editable and can be saved as PDF, too.
This list is reliable, as it is made based on the official practice workbook.
JLPT N3 Vocabulary List
You can access Google Sheets of “JLPT N3 Vocabulary List of Nouns” here.
Right now, only vocabulary lists of nouns, verbs and adjectives are available. Other vocabulary lists are in preparation now.

How the List was Made
Basically, this list is made based on JLPT Official Practice Workbook. All vocabulary for listening comprehension and reading grammar as well as vocabulary is covered.
This includes the vocabulary of the question text as well as the options.
For listening comprehension, the vocabulary of the listening comprehension script is covered as well as the vocabulary of the question text.
Note: As this vocabulary list is for N3, the vocabulary which is used in N4 and N5 Official Practice Workbook are not covered. Please refer to this following post for the N5 Vocabulary List.
JLPT N4 Vocabulary List from Official Workbook
JLPT N5 Vocabulary List from Official Workbook
If there is a “1” in the “without furigana” column, the vocabulary appears in the question without furigana.
The Reason I Referred to the Official Practice Workbook
Since 2010, the JLPT has been closed to the public, both in terms of question criteria and past questions. The only official information available is the official question booklet, so I decided to make the vocabulary list based on this booklet.
In this post, I shared a JLPT N3 vocabulary list in Google Sheets.
I hope you’ll find this useful and pass the exam!
