The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is based on these 1945 touyou kanji. Hiragana are derived from more complex kanji and each hiragana represents a syllable. Japanese dictionaries list around 10. A Japanese with average education knows around 3000 kanji and it is estimated that around 4000 kanji are used in Japanese literature.000 kanji. The term “kanji” literally means “Han characters” or “Chinese characters” and it is identical to the characters in China to describe their writing. To a lesser extend it nowadays also uses some Latin alphabet for abbreviations and numbers. 2) Hiragana (平仮名) Hiragana is a phonetic alphabet that was developed in the ninth century to simplify writing. The Japanese government limited the kanji used in official publications to the 1945 touyou kanji with about 4000 readings. Kanji are mainly used to describe names and nouns.The Japanese writing system The Japanese written language consists of a combination of three types of characters. 1) Kanji (漢字) Kanji originally came from China to Japan.

The reason why becomes obvious when practicing with a brush pen1 . All characters are written one by one and in the same size. although this is not very practical due to the high number of words having the same pronunciation but different meanings. It takes time to get used to this and easily distinguish different words. A book printed in tategaki opens from what Westerners would call the back. which feels a little bit unusual for most foreigners. Horizontal writing (yokogaki) is from the left to the right as in western style. while a book printed in yokogaki opens from what traditionally in Japan would have been considered the back. It is important to write the strokes in the correct order and directions to give the characters the right shape. Japanese writing system . There are no spaces between different words. 2 Wikipedia.2 1 A brush pen is a pen with a brush instead of a brush instead of the nib. which is very much recommended for beginners. Japanese writing is made in two directions.A I U E ピェ (pye) O ファ (fa) フィ (fi) フェ (fe) フィェ (fye) ホゥ (hu) ミェ (mye) リェ (rye) フォ (fo) ラ゜(la) リ゜(li) ル゜(lu) レ゜(le) ロ゜(lo) 4) Writing a Japanese text It is possible to write everything in hiragana or katakana since both scripts cover the entity of sounds of the Japanese language. You can get them in some Japanese shops or via mail order. Traditional writing (tategaki) is vertical starting from the right top and ending at the left bottom.
