App Description

If you're just starting out learning Japanese, this app can help you learn the words for animals, body parts, colors, food, and numbers without stress - in fact, it's even fun!

Japanese Pairs takes the classic pairs memory game and adds a Japanese twist: match the Japanese word on one card with the picture on another.


- Five categories with over 100 words and pictures to play with, plus a mixed mode that uses all words at once.

- Three difficulty levels that adjust the number of cards and the range of words.

- Designed for beginners and younger students, with fun graphics and sound effects.

This app is perfect for everyone who is just starting out in Japanese and wants to master basic vocabulary, and is even suitable to encourage young children as they learn.
