GAME TIME: The Hiragana Game

Test your Hiragana skills with this fun and free game! For kiddos (and parents!) 6 years and up.

Here's the Game

“Hiragana Game” is a game where you can practice your hiragana skills. Great for a small group, you can click the randomizer and it'll generate a hiragana letter and a category. Each person will take turns coming up with an answer that fits the category and that starts with the hiragana letter (in English or Japanese!).

Grab some friends, click the randomizer and test your skills!

Instructions:

Press the button above to generate a random hiragana character and category. Try to think of as many words that start with that letter (in Japanese or English). Practice makes perfect, so have fun!
