Hiragana Practice

The following hiragana characters are in random order. Please write the rōmaji (transliteration) in each yellow box.
If the characters don't display properly, you either don't have a font with Japanese characters installed, or your browser is not set to the right coding.

Got them all with 44 seconds to spare. I'm pleased to know I still remember them even though I haven't practised Japanese for two years!

Yeah... I know but the pronunciation sounds kinda same and it's confusing (~_~メ)

Cool quiz, the randomisation makes it a lot more interesting too.

I don't actually know any hiragana, I just spent my time typing in various syllables and pressing tab until I found the right one, haha. I got 5 (to, hi, shi, n, and no). It'll be interesting to compare my scores when I actually start trying to learn Japanese.
