Kanji is the most difficult thing I learnt in Japanese, takes hours of practice, and find the right Kanji when spotted somewhere. Why the Japanese people adopted the Kanji system?

It's indeed an FAQ.

In Japanese writing, the number of Kanji characters used is a measure of the sophistication and intelligence of the writer. Yes, it's tough on the student, but that is part of the Kanji advantage!
