Kana Mind

Are you studying or learning Japanese? Do you want to be able to read words in Japanese aloud?

Well, you're in luck! Kana Mind is a completely free educational game that helps you practice recognizing the symbols used in Katakana and Hiragana, the first two alphabet styles used in the Japanese language.

But it is not a simple matching or "flash card" game! It uses an intelligent, adaptive memorization algorithm focused on teaching the character combinations, and measuring the player's success with each pair. You will progress at the right pace for you, regardless of whether you're learning the language, or just practicing what you already know!

Do you want to achieve 100% proficiency in the Kana? You will do so before you even realize it!


• Two modes: learn reading and/or writing recognition
• Learn the complete Hiragana and/or Katakana alphabet
• Store multiple player profiles
• 3 different romanization styles: Hepburn, Nippon-shiki, and Kunrei-shiki. Pick from what your country/school uses!
• Groups of characters can be toggled on or off for more focused exercises
• Free application: no ads, no personal user data collection, no in-app purchases
