Kanabun is a simple learning game of Japanese.

Use Hiragana on the game board and make as many Japanese words as possible to get high score in 2 minutes.

Although the rule is simple, the game is challenging.

If you are learning Japanese, this is the game for you!! Improve your vocabulary during just having fun.

No.1 ranked in Game > Education category in Japan

My elementary school kids got addicted. Although it is very simple game, kids can learn words with having fun with their parents. 4 stars (k-matsu Japan)

Awfully addicting. Dangerous. 4 stars (Kojima Japan)

I play most in the games that I have downloaded!! It would be better if I could play music in my iTunes playlist during playing the game. 4 stars (Shiitake-kun Japan)
