Learn how to write Hiragana

If you find this page to be useful, please support it. If you are a webmaster, consider adding a link to this location. Thanx.

This flash animation should help you learn how the Hiragana is written. Each sign consits of a number of pen strokes. In Japanese, for every glyph, there is a certain stoke order and stroke direction. Even though you end up with the same character even if you don't respect the order, it is good to learn the proper order in which every stroke is drawn as well as the proper direction. Japanese people will notice if you don't do it right and might consider it a lack of knowledge of their language.
