“I came across Dr. Moku's Hiragana Mnemonics. Thirty minutes later I had memorized all hiragana. - Mark Frauenfelder founder of BoingBoing.net
Each screen presents a Hiragana character along with a mnemonic clue and audio clip. Read the clue, listen to the clip and move on to the next one. The alternating bold colors will 'reset' your brain so you start fresh with each symbol, allowing you to learn auto-magically.
Please note: you will need a basic understanding of English to use this app.
Learning Japanese may seem like an impossible task but with Dr. Moku you will be amazed at your ability to learn and recall.
The Japanese written language is comprised of three writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. New students must learn Hiragana and Katakana (both are referred to as "kana") first and this process usually takes between a week and month. With the Dr. Moku system we have seen students learn all Hiragana and Katakana in less than one hour!
Psst! We are releasing our long awaited Kanji app early 2017!

This app is amazing! I learned all of my hiragana in one day. One day. It's so easy to use and learn the hiragana with the pictures they are using that it stays in your brain! It's really helpful and amazing. You won't regret using this app if you want to learn hiragana fast and easy. I recommend if you like to look at pictures like reading. Each hiragana has a picture that the hiragana is. Ex: ら ra the picture is of a (ra)bbit and the dash in ら is a carrot so you remember that (ra)bbit likes carrots.
It's pretty good.
The website leads you to belive that the flashcards are going to be presented with voice overs of Dr. Moku. When you get into the app on the iPhone, there are no voice overs, only flashcards with an option to hear the pronunciation. The content and memorization tips are really great though.
