learning japanese bookmarks

i found these at my local bookstore. hiragana and katakana are the 2 phonetic writing systems in japanese. there is also kanji, which is a pictographic writing system from china. japanese is usually written with a combination of kanji and hiragana, and katakana is used for foreign loan words, names of plants or scary animals).

these bookmarks have all the hiragana/katakana characters, plus the pronunciation written in roman letters below. would you like 1 (or both)? i'll send them to your for free with any order from my shop, just leave a note!

while supplies last.

May I ask which store you bought those at and how much they were? I wouldn't mind picking a pair up when I'm next in Japan as I won't be that far away (My wife's family lives in Nara).

Thanks. :)

i found them at junkudo in kobe. they are free at the cashier's counter, printed by a publishing company, kodansha (i think). they often have free bookmarks, and the designs change every so often.
