Hirakana drawing steps.

We higly recommend you to write Japanese hirakana in correct drawing steps. It will not only help you to draw clean lettering, but also help you to read someone else's handwriting. Native Japanese commonly reduce the steps or "cut in corner" in the drawing to faster writing. Knowing the correct sequence, your instinct helps you to decipher the "abbreviation". It would be much easier if you start it at the begining.
