Japanese Alphabets (Hiragana and Katakana)

When writing Japanese, there is an order in which you must follow.

To learn the proper way of writing, you should study but a general rule of thumb is this:
1) write from top to bottom, and left to right,
2) start with horizontal upper line, from left to right, and
3) write vertical line on the left side, from top to bottom.

*** There are exceptions so, you should learn properly.
I would recommend EasyJapanese.org.

Below is the list of alphabets, for your reference.
