Interesting facts about Japanese

Japanese grammar is different to English grammar and Japanese uses several different alphabets, as well as kanji. Kanji is a pictorial representation of the concept behind a word - you can take a look at our Japanese Word of the Day tool to see an example. Japanese can combine more than one Kanji character to create a new idea or concept. For example, the Japanese word for firework is made up of the Kanji for flower and the Kanji for fire. You can learn more about Kanji here.

The different alphabets that are used in Japanese are:

  • Hiragana - Used to spell out native Japanese words
  • Katakana - Used to spell out words which are not of Japanese origin
  • Romaji - This uses the Latin alphabet in order to spell out words for people who can't read Japanese characters. You will notice that we have used Romaji in our Japanese phrases on this page.

Japanese text can run left to right, or right to left, or top to bottom. In Japanese technical manuals or Japanese newspapers, the text normally runs left to right. However, one of our project managers has a Japanese art book in which the text runs from top to bottom, and right to left!
