Tutorials Japanese Kana

This series is part of a larger series of general tutorials known as “Asher Explains It All“.

This series of posts covers the Japanese kana, the basic syllabary used by the Japanese writing system.  There are two sets of kana, those known as hiragana, and the other set known as katakana.  This series starts with the hiragana pure sounds, and then moves to cover all the other, gradually building on previous posts/videos.  It then moves on to the katakana and does the same thing.
