This is a 'Concentration' style memory game. Choose one card and click on it to reveal a hiragana letter, then turn over another card to try to find the hiragana that forms a matching pair. From the outset, what's most important here is a finely-tuned 'sixth-sense'. After that, it's probably mostly luck... With this game you can also work out your memory-muscles!
