Hiragana Flash Cards

(6 customer reviews)


Pack of 52 large cards includes: Introduction sheet, chart of hiragana, 46 basic characters & 5 rules cards.  Perfect for visual learners!

This is where you will want to start your Japanese language journey! Hiragana is the Japanese phonetic alphabet and it contains all the sounds which make up Japanese. Learning this will give you a strong foundation to build upon and improve your pronunciation and understanding of Japanese.

Our method turns each character into an illustration of a familiar or useful Japanese word starting with that sound. It’s a bit like ‘A is for Apple’ but instead you get ‘ (Ka) is for らて(Karate)’. On the reverse of the card are the English spelling (called Romaji) and a mnemonic phrase to help with remembering the pronunciation.

Hai! Japanese is a passion project by learners (Lewis & Charlotte) for learners. We know all too well how confusing it can be to study this new language. We have taken the things we wish we knew when we started out ourselves and tried to convey them in a more intuitive, friendly and visually easy to understand manner. We hope you like it and it helps with your studies!

    To anyone learning Japanese I tell you this is what you have been looking for. They are fun to use and help you learn much faster!

    These flash cards are unbelievably good. I was struggling to memorise the characters and the creators of Hai! have really found a technique that will help with memorising Hiragana and also learning new words. Plus the design and illustrations are beautiful – I’d give them 10 stars if I could. Awesome product can’t recommend it enough (literally after 2 days of having it, I learned the A,K,S,T,N and H lines – not even joking )

    Simply THE BEST tool for learning Japanese if you’re a beginner. These cards make learning incredibly fun and easy. For me, it never really felt like learning, it’s more like playing a very relaxing game. But the results are simply incredible. With these cards, I managed to master both Hiragana and Katakana in only two months and now I’m already deep into more complicated Kanji characters. The quality of the cards is very high as well, they have a very pleasant matte texture to them so it feels really nice holding them in your hands. This would also make a great gift. Highly recommended!

    I got these along with the Katakana cards and kanji book, for my boyfriend but I’m so jealous. The cards are super nice quality and feel nice to hold. The illustrations are firstly, so pretty, and secondly so effective in helping you memorise the Hiragana. Over all they are amazing quality and amazingly affordable. Would definitely recommend and would definitely purchase any future products.

    I love it! The images really help me memorize the characters. Thank you for creating these Lewis and Charlotte!

    I bought this deck and Katakana one from Amazon as I hoped they’d use a courier…if I’d known they used Royal Mail I’d’ve got them here.

    The cards are larger than I thought, which turned out ideal. Using the concept of A is for Ame brings back nursery school days which I think is an excellent way of reinforcing the length of the journey to fluency. At 59 and just starting it helps me realise the time and commitment needed for fully understanding the complexity of the language.

    I intend to use the language to boost my employability far beyond retirement age and only wish I’d started sooner so I could have taken advantage of visiting the country earlier in life. The decks are a huge benefit to me.
