Write your name in Japanese Alphabets

Japanese language consists of three alphabets: kanji (pictographic characters imported from China), hiragana and katakana (phonetic alphabets developed in Japan). To read a newspaper, you must know 2,000 commonly used kanji, hiragana and katakana, which are taught in elementary school and junior high school, along with the English alphabets.
You'd better to write your name with katakana. Because, katakana is used to describe a word of foreign origin or onomatopheia. Katakana was made by deleting a part of kanji and symbolizing it. It is not difficult to remenber and write them. Let's try it!
When you can not find your name in the list, please let me know your name and its sound(*) via [email protected]. I will add the name into the list.
*example: Wyatt="WY"oming + "AT"lanta

To display Japanese alphabets on your browser, you may install a program to support Japanese language.

These are KATAKANA

Japanese people describe the sound of various kinds combining these fourty characters. How to combine is somewhat complicated, occasionally a voiced consonant mark is added or some characters are written in small size. Moreover, since Japanese does not have the pronunciation of "V", "L" and "TH", they are transposed to "B", "R" and "S/Z."
