Format: Paperback
As a basic introduction to hiragana its a handy book and aimed at the complete novice. The layout is very much like a school text book and your encouraged to photocopy parts of it like the practice pages.

The book breaks the Hiragana into easy sections of around 5 characters to learn at a time and shows how each is both sounded and written including the stroke order. The end of each section has test quizes for that section with all the answers at the back of the book.

as you work through the book any romanji words are written to include the characters that you have previously learned to assist in easy learning.. it works too!!

At only 80 pages it isnt very thick but then your not going to be overwhelmed with information thats too complex either.

Most of the information in this book is also available in the Japanese from zero book 1 by the same authors but I find it works well as a stand alone book for quick and easy reference.

This is the second YesJapan book I've bought and overall I've found them very useful. There are a few mistakes but so far it's not been anything too drastic, for example one of the activities requires you to join a line from hiragana to the corresponding ro-maji (basically connecting the character to the pronunciation) however there's an error where one character is wrong and doesn't connect, however it's clear that whoever made it accidentally mistook this character for another that looks very similar, as it's that pronunciation which is provided and not the correct one*. That being said this is nothing that any user would be thrown by as they'll have just spent the last few pages learning the difference!

Instead of the 'gi' (ぎ) character being there to match up with its pronunciation, the character for 'za' (ざ) is used.

I watch a fair bit of anime, read a fair bit of manga, and am quite interested in Japanese culture on a whole, so I bought this book in hopes of slowly learning the Japanese language properly. This book was super easy to learn from and, with a little revision on my own, I'm happy to say I can read and write Hiragana now :D There are a few typo's I've noticed in the book, but nothing I can't work my way around! Would definitely recommend for any one starting out with learning Japanese!

There's a mistake in lesson one. It says blue in Japanese is "au" when its actually "ao"...

Easy to use and clearly presented. I'm finding this a good way to learn the characters and begin to develop a written vocabulary.
