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 N5 vocabulary list in Google Sheets.
It is editable and can be saved as PDF, too.
JLPT N5 Vocabulary List
You can access Google Sheets of “JLPT N5 Vocabulary List of Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives” 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
Vocabulary in this list includes:
- all vocabulary used in the official practice workbook
- vocabulary related to those in the official practice workbook
Details are as follows.
All Vocabulary Used in the Official Practice Workbook
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.
Vocabulary Related to Those in the Official Practice Workbook
Related vocabulary is also included in the list. For example, since “Sunday,” “Monday,” and “Tuesday” appear in the official question booklet, the list includes all the names of the days of the week.
Note: You can refer to the following post for the N4 Vocabulary List.
JLPT N4 Vocabulary List from Official Workbook
Why did I refer 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 rely on this information.
In this post, I shared a JLPT N5 vocabulary list in Google Sheets.
I hope you’ll find this useful and pass the exam!
