  • Want to learn Japanese Hiragana/Katakana?
  • Want to learn practical everyday Japanese words?
  • Want an app to help test your knowledge of Japanese?

Japanese Hiragana & Katakana will help you with all of the above!

I created this app to answer those exact questions I had in my mind. I wanted an app where I can keep going over the basic Japanese characters and words to help retain my knowledge.

The objective of the app is to complete each level set which comprises of the number of rounds you select at the beginning.
To pass each round you will need to tap the correct kana (Hiragana or Katakana) lantern in the order that is required to spell out the alphabet or word.

Short on time? Just play the lower level sets!
Plenty of time? Challenge yourself to the 'all' level sets.

Head over to the App store, and download and try out the app!

Enjoy learning and playing!

As always, I'd love to hear your feedback to improve the app, so head over to the WIJ community page or Tomosan Studios facebook page to leave a comment or feedback!
