Kana is a general term for the syllabic Japanese scripts hiragana (ã²ã‚‰ãŒãª) and katakana (ã‚«ã‚¿ã‚«ãƒŠ) as well as the old system known as manyogana. These were developed from the logographic characters of Chinese origin known in Japan as Kanji (; Chinese pronunciation "hÃ nzÃ¬"), as an alternative and adjunct to these latter.
