Welcome to Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! Online, the Japanese language and culture blog: consume at least once a day with or without a meal and repeat for that just-learned feeling! We’re Kiki and Koko, your conductors keeping you on track to learning Japanese language and culture.
We offer you a challenge in the form of a question— The question that must be answered. Oh yes: Do You Know 「なにぬねの」? We mean, do you REALLY know「なにぬねの」? What colour are their eyes? What’s their favourite film?? But, more importantly: can you pair the sound to the matching moji (文字, characters)? Well, this is the time and this is the place to answer that!
We welcome back the loveliest Heisei era quiz generating robot friend we know: QUIZBO™. He’s here to say each hiragana aloud, and from there, you can try to identify which hiragana sounds like the character that was read. If you’ve been here since the previous lessons, you’ll know that QUIZBO™ is always available to listen to in his mobile form as QUIZBO™ mini; so, no worries if you need to have him repeat something, he’ll repeat it as many times as you like! As many times as you like. Anytime, anywhere~
Maybe you’re joining us for the first time, and you’re not totally sure which is the matching moji (文字, characters), but this is still here to help you revise/study! Be sure to visit the Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! Blog or Kiki+Koko: Let’s NihonGO!! Online site where we have all of the previous lessons available as well as QUIZBO™ who is there to help you learn the readings on any of the lessons marked with a 「🔊」
As for this quiz: the questions are in the same order each time, but the order of the answers are randomised, so you can always return or refresh to study/revise with a fresh look each time!
So, without further ado, let’s put those moji, 文字, muscles to the test!

That was 「なにぬねの」! How did it go? Maybe you got them all correct? Maybe you missed a few? Maybe you missed them all? No worries! If you were skilled enough to get them all correct, おめでとうございます, omedetou gozaimasu! Congratulations! But, if you didn’t, remember, it’s a journey; you might not have gotten them all correct yet, but if you continue to practise, you’ll find yourself getting it eventually. That’s what we’re here for! We’re here to help you achieve your Japanese learning goals.
If you refresh the page, you can continue to revise/study as many times as you like! Be sure to check back to the old lessons as well to keep them fresh in your memory. You can also test your skills again and apply your previous knowledge with the previous bonus activity! Practise reading with these digital flashcards coded just for you!! Be sure to leave a comment to tell us how you did. If you’re someone who can speak but is just learning to read, are there any other simple words you can think of that use any of the previously taught hirgana? We look forward to hearing from you!
We hope this was/will be helpful for you on your Japanese learning journey!
You mean a lot to us, really, and we appreciate that you’ve chosen to learn with us.
Until next time, thank you for visiting!
