Three consecutive nights of fiddling around in Macromedia (or should I say Adobe) fireworks has produced the following hiragana charts, as you can see the column colours are taken from the Jamaican and Japanese flag and a Jamaipanese touch has been added ^_^. The katakana version will be coming very soon. For those of you who have no idea what Hiragana or Katakana is don’t worry I have already prepared an explanation that will be posted as soon as I get the Katakana chart up, for those who know what hiragana and katakana is feel free to save the charts to your computer. I’ll be linking to the these charts in future lessons. Anyone who wants to learn Japanese has to learn these charts by heart (this is like your ABCs. Study the charts for a bit if you don’t already know them and then go here to test your memory of the hiragana characters.
