Study hiragana and katakana

On this page you can practice your hiragana and katakana recognition skills. Study just the main character set, or practice all variations with the available toggles. Some characters (like ヴ) and contractions (like ドゥ) are not yet included in this tool.

Study tips:

  • Practice is the key to memory! Establish a routine of 5-10 minutes per day, and you'll soon find you know all the kana!
  • Pronounce the characters (in your head, or out loud) as you quiz to reinforce your auditory memory
  • On your cellphone? Use the "I know it" and "I don't know" buttons to easily record your progress without needing to type. If you cheat, you'll only be cheating yourself.
