Learning how to master all of the Japanese 히라가나 in one day

We will be looking mainly at the techniques and will be providing a routine for this. We would suggest that you put yourself a full day a side of this challenge with no distractions. First let’s have a look at what the 히라가나 is first.

이것은 히라가나?

 There are 3 different writings in the Japanese language There’s the 히라가나카타카나, which have characters for each syllable. Then there’s the 한자 which are like small pictographs that represent meanings, there are tens of thousands of 한자 but only 46 히라가나, so that’s fantastic.

The Japanese language uses a combination of all 3, however, the 히라가나 is definitely the first writing system you should learn as you can basically communicate with just 히라가나 if you would like to.

Let’s look at the 히라가나

Here is a chart for you to refer to, containing all of the 히라가나. There are 46 in total so start by just reading through and familiarising yourself with all of the syllable sounds. Read them out to yourself a few times to get used to the way there sounds and get used to how your mouth moves when you speak.

Great job. As you can probably see by now, each row is starts with a certain letter and follows a similar pattern




What we are going to do now is look at the first line and show you how to really get to grips with learning the 히라가나, line by line.


An effective technique for remembering the 히라가나

A line by line approach is most definitely the best way to effectively learn the 히라가나. The real key is creating stories to help you link the shapes to the correct sounds.

Take a look at these few examples:

히라가나English SoundStory
에이It looks like “A” pretzel
I (ee)Looks like 2 letter “I”’s
Looks like an u on its side with a line on top
E (eh)Looks like an E with the 3 horizontal lines
O (oh)Looks like a bicycle, “O” that’s a nice bike.

If you can create these memorable types of stories for each 히라가나 you will be well on your way to mastery in no time.

We would say that you should spend 2 hours creating unique stories for all 46 of the 히라가나. Some can be difficult, but you will also be able to find a lot more online too so if you get stuck for inspiration head to google for ideas.

Once you have completed this with the A あ row, move on and start with the ka か row. This way you will have a nice easy to digest system in place that can really fire you to victory.

Once you have completed all of the rows you should try and test yourself. Create a set of flash cards that have the English sound on one side and the Japanese 히라가나 character on the other. Eliminate the ones that are easy for you and then just focus on the ones that are hard for the rest of the time.

This should take around 2 hours to complete to mastery with a few small breaks in between.

Now finally move on and try to write as many Japanese words as you know in 히라가나. This is a fantastic exercise for you to help you master the 히라가나 in 24 hours.

Other rules of the 히라가나 알파벳

Now there are a few other rules with 히라가나 that you are going to need to learn before you can master it completely.

These are:

The Dakutenがwhich is the 2 small lines on the upper right of the 한자 and the small circleぽ in the same location. This changes the sound of the 한자 and can be seen in the chart below.

The combination 히라가나: やゃ ゆゅ よょwhich alter the ending sound of the 히라가나

The small っ which turns things into a double consonant.
