    @urtellas that is not quite true actually. 一二三四五六七八九十 is the “normal” way of writing numbers, 壹贰叁肆伍陆柒捌玖 and 拾 (which u forgot to mention) is the way of writing numbers on banknotes, checks etc. (comparable to writing “one” instead of “1″).

    Hmm I just thought I should mention that the characters 壹贰叁肆伍陆柒捌玖零 aren’t necessarily traditional characters. Rather, they are used when dealing with numbers financially, such as in cheques and share markets.

    Writing in this way makes it more difficult to manipulate the numbers. It is very easy to change the character 一 to 三 by adding a few strokes to it.

    not similar. Japanese kanji IS chinese. back then china was the major trendsetter of the east. most of asia (ie japan; korea) either borrowed or was inspired by their culture. kanji literally means “Han characters”.
