It is a very good product and a very good tool for reviewing. However on some of the cards there are very obvious misprints on the vocabulary. For example, on the card for ぼ (bo) the word ぼく meaning "I" is translated as "dangerous", ぼうし was romanized as "bentou" and it said bentou meant "grapes" when it means lunch and grapes is ぶどう or "budou". It also romanizes ぼろぼろ as boushi meaning pig, when it translates as boroboro meaning tattered, and boushi is hat while pig is ぶた or buta. Furthermore it says ぼう is benri in romaji, but it still properly translates it as stick. And it says the romaji for ぼうえき is bengoshi when it is boueki.
Even with that said the mistakes are not on very many cards, I think I only noticed something similar on one other card, but they could still be very confusing for a person who is just learning japanese.
In addition the card for みゅ (myu) is completely missing from this set. みゃ (mya) is card#88 and みょ (myo) is #89 so it was somehow skipped over, which is a little inconvenient when practicing and reviewing hiragana.

After two months of heavy grind, I couldn't get past the first two rows of the Katakana. I had completed my memorization of the Hiragana in two months and was looking to complete the entire kana, soon. I thought that having the Hiragana done should make the next step easier, not harder. Then my native speaker friend told my that my "r"s were all wrong! I needed a better tool. I picked up "Japanese Hiragana and Katakana Flash Cards". This fit the bill. With the MP3 files in my phone and the flash cards in my purse, I was able to complete the kana in another month and correct my pronunciation of the "r"s. For me, the completion test is write all the syllables for the Hiragana and then Katakana, in order, on a blank sheet of paper. The cards and MP3 files include 6 words that use that syllable. This makes the tool useful beyond just learning the kana. I continue to use the tool for review, to master the glides, and build my vocabulary. If this had been available when I started, I would have chosen it first.

Full disclosure: I teach Japanese at the same institution with Dr. Emiko Konomi, the author of this learning aid. My review of her new product will touch on how this study aid ably reflects her teaching philosophy and practice.

As a Japanese language instructor, I often recommend flash cards to students as a good way for them to learn hiragana, katakana, and kanji. They also help build vocabulary. What I find disheartening is that in the digital age, students favor cheap "app" versions that do very little each slide/"card". Long ago, making one's own flash card set (tora no maki) was an old skill you developed as a student of Japanese -- that is, before the new millennium. It seems a lost art. I thought so until I saw Emiko Konomi's updated Hiragana and Katakana Flash Card set from Tuttle. Everything you'd want on a flash card to learn hiragana and katakana she has put on these cards.

What do I mean by "everything"?

* The cards have the hiragana and katakana beautifully written.
* Stroke order is shown in box-by-box, step-by-step -- little arrows show the direction you should write. This is something many textbooks often leave out.
* 6 Vocabulary items for each mora ("letter") are provided. *I'll have more to say on the nice selection of vocabulary below.*
* Another nice feature is that in the lower right corner where she shows easily confused hiragana/katakana. This will be very helpful for new learners.
* On the back of the cards, the vocabulary is explained/defined in English.
* There is a small pronunciation guide/aid. For example., on "a" the guide explains: "Open your mouth and say, 'Ah,'" says the dentist.

I just received a set of Japanese Hiragana and Katakana flash cards by Glen McCabe as recently revised by Professor Emiko Konomi. I am really impressed, both by the low price and by the overall quality and value of the set. The real usefulness of a set like this is in the way it can facilitate the speed and accuracy of character recognition. I'm looking forward to using it this way. The cards are plastic coated, so they won't get "funky" like the ones I made for myself some time ago. Each card has a series of words written in kana, which aids in the reading of whole words. One of the most important features involves a high quality CD that comes with the cards. Using the CD in conjunction with the cards allows the learner to completely avoid using roomaji, and go directly from the Japanese character to the correct Japanese pronunciation. The 200 cards include the so-called "twisted sounds" as well as the "voiced" sounds. There are also wall charts of the characters, which, sad to say, I still find necessary on occasion. For the beginner, such charts would be of great value. I am currently teaching "Scientific Communication in English" at the Tokorozawa Campus of Waseda University. I am a colleague of Konomi-sensei at Portland State University and have also been a student in a Japanese class in which she was the instructor. She is truly a master teacher, and has used her considerable skills to produce a valuable and useful aid in the flash card set.
