One hour  Writing Kana class                                    Instructor:  Aya Koga sensei
 
Hiragana was developed from the cursive style of kanji in the beginning of the Heian era (794-1185).  Its function is to represent sound rather than meaning, and it is used to write native Japanese words as well as verb inflections, adjectival endings, etc.

Katakana was developed in the Nara period (710-794)) by either simplifying the kanji imported from China or by squaring off its cursive style. It is used to represent foreign names and words imported into the Japanese language, for onomatopoeic and mimetic words, certain slang expressions, telegrams, technical terms, and so forth.
