Morning:
(until about 10am, or when beginning your workday, be it morning or night.)

formalcasual
おはようございます
お早うご座います
おはよう、おはよー
 
pronunciationpronunciation


Please Note: The す in japanese is often pronounced like "ss", Thus, ございます actually sounds like "go-za-ee-mass". Also, when there's a う placed after a syllable ending with the sound "o" (お, こ, そ, と, の, ほ, も, よ, ろ), it simply prolongs the "o" sound.

Day:
(10am~8pm)

formalcasual
こんにちは
今日は
こんちは
(slang, teenage boys)
pronunciationpronunciation


Please Note: The は, when used as a particle, is pronounced "wa".

Evening:
(8pm~)

formalcasual
こんばんは
今晩は
---
pronunciation---


Please Note: Again, the は, when used as a particle, is pronounced "wa".

Night:
(when departing after 9pm)

formalcasual
おやすみなさい
お休みなさい
おやすみ
 
pronunciationpronunciation


Please Note: In this case, the すis fully pronounced.

These are all of the hiragana in use today for the Japanese language. For stroke orders, I recommend these two websites: Hiragana strokes applet and Hiragana stroke order.

Hello everyone. Aionwatha here. I've been asked for a while to make a community with Japanese lessons for those of my friends who wanted to learn. So here we go. I will try to update with a new lesson every friday. I will start at the very beginning with the hiragana, then katakana, and then into the greetings and such. It will be all in good funs and hopefully with bits of manga thrown here and there. I also have a microphone so I will try to record my voice speaking as well.

First, I would advise you to download a Japanese Editor such as JWPce. You might also want to download Japanese packages for Windows and Internet Explorer. If you're using Mozilla Firefox, you shouldn't have a problem with the Japanese at all.

And then, sit back and have fun.

Of course, reading and writing will only come with practice. I can't go look at whether or not you practice the writing, and so it is your responsability to motivate yourself to pactice until you know well enough to read.

みんながんばってね!

Edit 2006/06/01: I must appologize to everyone for the long delay I took in updating this. The past few months have been busy and crazy as hell. Moving overseas and getting all of the immigration paperwork done, plus adapting to a new job and getting the new apartment wired for internet took a lot longer than I feared. I'm very sorry.

Edit 2006/09/12: Starting anew with (hopefully) a better format. I am now going to assume you will learn your hiragana by practicing at home. No more higagana set. I will focus on grammar and vocabulary.
