ネ (ne) – Katakana


– Pronounced as the Japanese ‘ne’. Sounds closest to an English ‘ne’ as in ‘never’.


ね, in hiragana, or ネ in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora. The hiragana is made in two strokes, while the katakana is made in four.

As a particle, it is used at the end of a sentence, equivalent to an English, “right?” or “isn’t it?”


Mnemonic 1: This symbol, which can be found in some kanji, represents an altar. The followers of the terrible ‘Nemesis’ from the Hiragana Mnemonic perform their acts of worship on this altar.
