This app as well as the online course provided by the Japan Foundation have restored my hope in learning Japanese. I was feeling extremely overwhelmed when I sat down and came across all of the resources available but this app and the course have made it all so clear and easy to understand. I am just now starting my path of learning Japanese but am so excited and looking forward to how much I will learn!

Love this app

This is a great app. I’ve tried memorizing with no success until this app. The creative pictures really help. My one issue is the tiny type in history and directions on how to use the app.

This is a great app for learning hiragana. Not only does it provide useful mnemonics for each one, there are quizzes you can take to practice reading, recognizing and choosing the character from the sound.
