Hiragana Vowels

ひらがな母音

Introduction Introduction
Japanese has five basic vowel sounds, which coincidently are the same five basic vowels in Latin.

The characters in this lesson represent the vowels by themselves. When written this way, each character is pronounced as a whole syllable. When vowels combine with consonant sounds in the same syllable, their pronunciation is included in that character.
