A drag and drop game for learning Hiragana and Katakana.

This Kana drag-n-drop game is for Hiragana and Katakana, the Japanese alphabets (more correctly syllabic scripts), and Romaji. Drag and drop Kanas on the associated grid squares. Pick your kanas at the start of the game to choose between a Hiragana game or a Katakana game.

You are presented with a target set of shuffled Hiragana, or Katakana, Kanas at the bottom of the screen, and a Kana grid at the top of the screen. Drag all the target Kanas onto the appropriate grid Kanas. You can optionally limit the rows of Kana you play by clicking the green ticks above the grid.

The more you mix and match, the more you challenge your memory recall, and the more you play the better you memorize Hiragana and Katakana.
