So I learned the hiragana and katakana characters and how to type them on Tofugu a while ago, but I’ve been struggling with handwriting them. Tofugu says you don’t really need to know how to handwrite them, but I’m studying Japanese because I want to go to Japan for med school so I need to know how to write them out, so I was wondering if you guys knew of any good resources that would help me learn to handwrite all these kana.
Yes! I have all 3 of these workbooks. They take you through each character and give you a good 100 boxes on each page to write them, much like a blank genkouyoushi notebook, but with the stroke instructions until you get it down in your memory. I’m still working through mine as I don’t have a need for writing, but I do want to learn stroke orders and writing eventually! Hope this helps some
If you have an android device, I recommend Ringotan. It’s a SRS system for writing the Kanji and kana, it also has multiple ways to order the lessons, including Wanikani order. If you wanted to learn beyond the kana.
If you have an iOS device, I recommend Learn Japanese - Kanji. Donn’t let the name fool you, while it has kanji lessons the most useful part of it I’ve found is the kana section you do first, which has built in testing that tests you on stoke order and shape of your kana writing.
