While studying Japanese this past winter, I remembered some of the games I played while living in Japan. Those memories inspired me to create a game that made learning the language fun and accessible for everyone. Thus, in Shiritori Odori, each card has 5 parts:
kanji (漢字) - the adopted Chinese characters used for writing
cool colors :D
furigana - the reading of the kanji in hiragana (a syllabary for Japanese - it's a lettering system)
the English translation
the pronunciation of the word in roman characters
No matter your level, whether you're just starting out with Japanese or a native speaker, you can play the game!
